Hey everyone! My name is Stephanie (Steph). I am an educator, blogger, and curriculum designer. I have over 15 years teaching middle school and have taught ELA and science.
I am a self-proclaimed technology nerd and love bringing technology into my classroom. I am always the first to try new edtech and enjoy sharing my experiences with other teachers looking to bring more tech into their own classrooms. Technology is one more tool to keep students motivated and engaged in their own learning. It also helps me run my classroom efficiently.
As a teacher, we are always evolving. I enjoy creating classroom curriculum that reaches a variety of learning styles. I find satisfaction in finding the right book for the student who “hates to read” or showing students why science is so awesome.
I enjoy traveling, especially to the beach, whenever I can. I love spending time with my family and my furbabies. I also have an unhealthy addiction to reality television and medical dramas!
Why The Marvelous Middle? I am in the middle for a variety of reasons. I teach MIDDLE school. I live in the MIDDLE of the country (central Illinois). I am in the MIDDLE of my life (almost 50!). And most days being in the middle is pretty marvelous…
