Years of Teaching Experience: 6
“A teacher who loves teaching, teaches students who love learning.”
My name is Stephanie Marcinkowski and I am proud to be the 4th grade teacher. This is my 6th year teaching here at SFA. I am so lucky that I have called this place “home” ever since I was in the first grade. My three brothers and I were Falcons here at SFA! Upon spreading my wings I attended Carondelet and then onto the University of the Pacific where I studied Elementary Education with a focus in math. I graduated summa cum laude and was more than eager to have my own classroom! Throughout my time at SFA I have been able to rekindle with many familiar faces as well as meet new ones along the way. I am also grateful that I get to incorporate my love for leadership by moderating our Student Council. In addition, I am entering my third year as a part of the Administrative Team.
I strive to teach and inspire with creativity and enthusiasm by providing a rigorous and accountable curriculum for my students. I hope that my students develop understanding and growth in all subject areas. I encourage my students to practice and develop mastery and to be proud of their accomplishments. I believe that as a teacher I have the opportunity to make a lasting impression on my students’ future, and I want to make a difference in their lives. I believe in a classroom that fosters positive learning for all students. As a teacher, I am engaged with each of my students to help them achieve their greatest potential. It is an environment where students can learn, play, work, grow, respect, and inspire together. I truly have the greatest job in the world, and I thank you for being a part of my journey.
