Hello! My name is Stephanie Saunders and I am so excited to be on the third-grade team at Antelope Canyon Elementary! This will be my 7th year teaching and my third time teaching third grade! I got my undergraduate degree and English as a Second Language endorsement from Southern Utah University. Then I got my master’s degree in Curriculum Design and Instruction from Western Governors University. Being in the classroom brings me so much joy. I love seeing my students grow academically and personally throughout the year. It makes me so proud to see them become a better version of themselves! In my classroom every day is a new day to learn, laugh and to be loved. I view my classroom as a family and we get the chance to help each other become better every single day. Outside of school I love to spend time with my husband watching movies and playing card games.
I teach because I want to help my students gain confidence and understanding, not only in academics, but in social situations and in their own personal image.
