Mrs. Stephanie Janes
Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to have your child in my class! This is my 17th year teaching and I am so excited to be teaching at Daphne Elementary again! I taught here 12 years ago and I feel so lucky that I am able to come back to such a wonderful school!
In 2004, I married my wonderful husband, Zach, and then we moved to Georgia. We are the proud parents to our daughter, Isabela, who is eleven years old, and also to our six year old son, Gunnar, who is in first grade here at DES. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to exercise, being outside, going to the beach, reading, and playing games with my family! I love traveling and visiting new and exciting places. One of my favorite places that I've been to is Spain! My mother is from Spain, so I've been lucky enough to go there a few times! I also love watching Alabama football! Roll Tide!
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a few years later I added a Master's Degree in Leadership and Administration. Shortly after, I earned my Educational Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Over time, I added on my certification in Special Education and also became certified in English for Speakers of Other Languages. I guess you can say I love to learn!
I am grateful to be teaching at Daphne Elementary School with such wonderful teachers, involved parents, and fabulous students! Every grade that I have ever taught has been absolutely wonderful because of the children. I truly believe that I was meant to be a teacher! I am constantly learning new things from the staff that I work with, my parents, and of course my students! If you need anything please feel free to ask.
