My name is Kara Stephens and I am so excited to be working with your students! This is my second year at Saint Paul Public Schools, but I have been teaching for 6 years. I have had experience in a variety of grades and subjects from Kindergarten, Pre-K Headstart program, Montessori Pre-K program, First grade, and a lot of substitute teaching. I absolutely love working with students in pre-k. The curiosity and excitement students bring to the learning environment is infectious and inspires me each day!
I am originally from South Dakota. I grew up in a small town called Belle Fourche which is located near the Black Hills. Once I finished high school, I moved to eastern South Dakota where I attended South Dakota State University. I moved to Minnesota in 2017 and fell in love with all of the hiking trails, lakes, and many activities to attend in the cities.
I can't wait to learn and grow with your students this year!
