My name is Matthew Stephens. This will be my first year at Stukey. In 2011 I graduated Knox College with a degree in Elementary Education. After that, I spent two years outside Chicago as a special education assistant and the last 8 years teaching 5th and 6th grade in Tulsa, OK. I moved to Colorado this year to be closer to my family and the mountains. My dog Ollie and I love to hike and camp. My favorite subject in school was always science and I hope this year to instill that same love of experimentation and creative thinking in my class of scholars. I’m excited to be a Stukey Stinger and I can’t wait for this year to get started. Fifth Grade, Best Grade!
