HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE
Miss Stephanie has worked at Kids Express since graduating from UW-Whitewater with a degree in Early Childhood and Special Education in December 2014. She has known she wanted to be a teacher since she was in fourth grade, and is excited to finally be working at her dream job. Miss Stephanie grew up in DeForest, Wisconsin, the second of five children - with all of her siblings living in not-so-distant Beaver Dam.
Stephanie married her high-school sweetheart in the summer of 2015. In her free time, she enjoys going on walks, running, reading books, and eating at the Olive Garden.
As a student teacher, Stephanie spent two months teaching in Ecuador, an experience which taught the teacher (learner) to be flexible, creative with limited resources, and to use the environment at hand to guide her lessons. Miss Stephanie was drawn to KELC's hands-on learning environment and naturalistic setting. She has taught children ages 3-4 in The Giving Tree Classroom, and during the “Summer on the Farm” taught children from grades 1-3.
