Meet Professional Learning Specialist Ms. Crowe!

msCroweThis month, we’d like you to get to know Stephanie Crowe, our school’s Professional Learning Specialist. Stephanie grew up in Southern California in the San Fernando Valley. She received her Bachelor’s and Teaching Certificate from California State University North Ridge. Stephanie began her career in California at a private school for three years. It was then that she and her husband Bruce decided to go on an adventurous trip. They toured around the United States deciding where they wanted to put down roots and fell in love with our beautiful state!

They moved to Colorado in 1996 where Stephanie taught 3rd and 4th grades at Fox Creek and Saddle Ranch Elementary schools for 17 years. She is part of the original team that opened Sage Canyon and taught 5th and 6th grades before moving into her current role as Sage Canyon’s Professional Learning Specialist (PLS).

The Professional Learning Specialist role is a critical part of the Sage Canyon administrative leadership team and Stephanie’s 20 years of teaching helps significantly in this role. One of Stephanie’s critical roles is to mentor teachers. The State of Colorado has stringent requirements for any new teacher to Colorado, where they must participate in a two-year program. It is Stephanie’s responsibility to manage this program. Along with this work, she leads all professional development for the teachers.

Stephanie met her husband, Bruce, 23 years ago. He keeps very busy as a residential/commercial builder. They have a nine-year old daughter, Kyra, in Ms. Mann’s 4th grade class. When Kyra is not busy with school she loves singing and playing soccer. She sings in her church and the Sage Canyon choir. When Stephanie is not working, she and her family love to travel to the Caribbean, snowshoe, play board games and scrapbook. They also have a four-legged kid, a black lab named, Jack.

A fun fact about Stephanie that you may not know is that she met her husband Bruce at a Red Robin where she was a waitress. She also served the famous Heather Locklear!!!!

Please take a moment when you see Stephanie in the halls to say, “Hi,” and thank her for all the amazing work she does with our important teachers!
