Stephanie Pankewich - 1st

Hello My Name Is...

Stephanie Pankewich

Welcome!  We are going to have a fantastic year in first grade.  I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you better this year.

A little about myself......

I am married to my best friend, Skip, and have 4 children that attend our fantastic school district.  Emerald is in 7th grade, Calvin is in 5th grade, Zachary is in the 3rd grade, and we have an exchange student from Spain living with us this year named Bea who is a senior.  Our home life is filled with soccer, soccer, and more soccer.

In my spare time I love to travel.  I'd travel the world if I could!  I've been lucky enough to have traveled to Mexico several times, China, Hong Kong, Tahiti, St. John, and 36 of the 50 states including a grand adventure to Alaska.  Our plan is to add more memories next summer as we travel to Germany, Italy, and Spain.  I speak some Spanish and will be using it occasionally in our class.

In the past I taught 3rd grade for 5 years, then I looped up with my class and taught 4th grade for a year.  I still keep in touch with many of my former students and have visited several of them.  This summer I saw one of my students sing in Nashville, hiked with a student in Alaska, toured the college campus with other students, and watched graduations.  I love keeping in touch and watching "my kids" grow up.  The last several years I have been a long-term substitute 5 times at Wolf Creek including Kindergarten, 1st grade (twice), SPED, and 4th grade.  I'm happy to have my own class again and get the chance to really connect with my students.  

This year we will have so much fun.  I am always happy to answer any questions you may have.  Please don't hesitate to contact me.
