The thing she hopes her students take away from her class is that they will always have someone in their corner, they can be themselves and “that history does not have to be our future.”

An interesting fact about Stephanie is that she spent two summers teaching at Woodland Star International School in Kenya Africa. She was also the only hair and makeup designer to place in the 2011-2012 Kennedy Center Competition for Theatre and receive a Barbizon award.

Congratulations to Stephanie for being chosen this week’s Nissan of Picayune Teacher of the Week.
