Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Second Grade! I am Stefanie Thayer and I love teaching Second Grade. This year will be my 11th year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade. I launched the first Dual Language Immersion programs in both First and Second grade in the county where I taught before coming to Johnston County and teaching at Powhatan Elementary. I am so thankful to be teaching closer to home!
I grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh (Go Steelers!) and went to Indiana University of Pennsylvania for college. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Concentration in Reading. Besides cheering on the Steelers, I spend my time at home with my husband Brad, daughter Lillian, and Labradoodle Marley. I love taking walks, going to the beach, and having fun with my family.
I am so excited to be your child's teacher and I can not wait for the FANTASTIC year we are going to have together!
