Ms. Stephanie E.

Program Director

“My name is Mrs. Stephanie. I am from Erie, Pennsylvania. I am a former Middle school special education teacher and I also have an Early Childhood Education and a Family Advocacy Associates. I have over 6 years of experience within the teaching field. I have been with Gilden Woods for two years now.  I started my journey in the Pratt classroom as the lead teacher.  Next I moved to become the Assistant Director and now the Program Director.  I love helping children develop and reach their full potential! For fun, I enjoy anything outdoors, reading and traveling. I'm a newlywed and love spending time with my Husband and our dog Sydney. I have lived in Central America for 2 years while teaching English and working in the missionary field. I'm very happy to call Gilden Woods my home now!”
