Ms. Stephenson comes from a humanities background with a passion for Education. Spending her undergraduate years at the University of Denver, Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in Education and a Minor in History, she knew that at one point in her career, she would be a classroom teacher. Upon graduating, she earned a Master of Science degree in Education from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts and decided that higher education was still beckoning. Pursuing a Law degree from San Francisco Law School, Ms Stephenson thrived in the field of study. It was later in her career that she felt a calling to teach. For over a decade, she has anchored courses in AP European History, World History, and American History at Washington High School. At her school site, she also started the National Honor Society and was became the advisor for the club, helping to grow student membership. Ms. Stephenson has also been an advisor for Model UN and Speech and Debate. Ms. Stephenson has also participated as a reader for the College Board’s European History evaluation team.
