Summary of Professional Experiences: 

Education has been in Stacey’s heart since she started Kindergarten and required her little sister to be her first student – teaching her to count, read and tie her shoes. Upon receiving licensure, Stacey had the privilege of teaching elementary students in 2nd and 3rd grade in the suburbs of Minneapolis and St. Paul for over a decade. With the same district, she served as an instructional coach, offering support to teachers to increase individual and school goals, and ultimately student achievement. In addition, she has experience as an elementary building principal – ensuring a safe and productive learning environment for students and staff, creating and supporting systems, staff evaluations, and creative use of resources. Most recently, her role as an Elementary TLS Supervisor supported curriculum evaluation for elementary content areas as well as implementing and supporting instructional coaching programming. 

Personal Information:

Stacey was born and raised in a small eastern Wisconsin town, as the daughter of a high school educator. After attending the University of Wisconsin-Stout, she ventured to the Twin Cities and continued her education at Hamline University where she received a Master of Arts in Teaching degree and a K-12 Principal license. Stacey currently resides near White Bear Lake with her husband, their son, daughter and their dog, Murray. Her free time is spent enjoying Starbucks coffee and spending time watching her kids at hockey arenas and volleyball courts.
