My name is Stephanie Montgomery. I have the wonderful privilege of being the elementary P.E. and middle school science teacher at ACS for the 2022-2023 school year. Next year I will be teaching sixth grade. I wanted to write to introduce myself. I have been teaching for fifteen years. I have taught at Grand Rapids Public, Kalamazoo Public, and Muskegon Heights! I loved them all!! I believe that experience helped me realize the importance of Christian Education. After subbing a few times at Algoma Christian, I was asked to be a full-time aide in the 2nd-grade room. I love building relationships with ACS students in the classroom and at recess. I have felt God leading me to this opportunity. I am looking forward to freely speaking about my faith with my students.
Most of my teaching experience has been in multiple grades in one classroom. I have a Bachelor's in Education and a Master of Arts in Education Curriculum and Technology in the Classroom. I also have a state teaching certification, CPR certification, and Montessori certification in upper elementary, and I am six college classes away from state certification for the principalship.
My husband, Craig, graduated from Algoma Christian in 1991. My son, Cody, is a third grader this year. Besides teaching, I enjoy fixing our house, kayaking, reading, crocheting, and music. As a family, we love to be outside.
