Hi, I am Stephanie. A mother of two, wife, and once again a college student. I love spending time with my family, sewing, and seeing new places. I grew up in the La Verne area for most of my childhood, but in the past 10 years I have moved all around California and now I am happy to be back home. I come from hardworking parents who were born and raised in two very different parts of the world, Mexico and Jordan. Like many kids with both parents at work, I have spent much time on my own figuring out this thing called life with many trials and errors along the way. With both parents being foreign who have little knowledge of the English language, my education was solely my responsibility and would not have been possible without my many amazing teachers. I am so excited to be sharing my future goals and experiences of finally becoming a teacher myself with all of you. Since I can remember, teaching has been the one career I could see myself doing for the rest of my life. After years of having dead end jobs that were not satisfying to my dreams, I decided to take a leap of faith and just go for it. I whole heartedly hope that I can be an everlasting positive impact on the lives of many children in the years to come.
