- “Stephanie is a master teacher who works to design rigorous and engaging lessons for her students. She also works hard to build relationships with all students, even if they are no loner in her class, and does whatever she can to help all students be successful. Her organization and commitment to her profession really make her an outstanding teammate and colleague. I’m so proud and lucky to work with her!”
