Meet Miss Stephanie!
Hello Children Central families! My name is Miss Stephanie and I joined this team of talented and dedicated staff and teachers in November, 2019 as a teacher in the Toddler Room. I am very happy to have this opportunity to become a Pre-Kindergarten Teacher.
During the summers while in college, I started working in child care centers. After graduating from Ursinus College in 2001, I joined Early Intervention in Philadelphia. I was a Special Instructor for 16 years, as I enjoyed working with children from birth to three year olds. During this time, I developed and implemented goals for children and their families. I was also able to co-lead a parent child group to help children socialize and prepare for preschool. I have been and always will be dedicated to helping children reach their goals.
“It takes a village to raise a child”, has always been a favorite saying of mine. Family has a unique role in shaping our lives, but so do the people we meet along the way, including their teachers. Helping children grow, and develop new skills, has always been an amazing feat to achieve for me as a teacher. Watching first steps, hearing new words and understanding new concepts are everyday blessings, as there is always something new to learn.
A bit about me. My family includes my husband Eric and my two boys Danny (10) and Jason (6). We have two cats Elvis and Jingles. In the past, I have participated on teams such as basketball, softball and darts. I was a campfire girl (like Girl Scouts). I would love to travel more. In college I spent three weeks in France for an art history class and on my honeymoon we took a tour of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
I look forward to getting to know you and all of the children in Pre-kindergarten, as we help prepare the class for kindergarten!
