Ms. Stacey
I moved to Durango in 2012 for the gorgeous scenery, small town feel,  and active lifestyle. I am starting my 9th year teaching in this amazing place and can't wait to grow alongside my students. I have been with Juniper since it opened in 2017 and am excited to continue the journey! I earned my Bachelor's of Science in education from Wilmington College of Ohio with specialties in English Language Arts and Science.  I am also an Orton-Gillingham trained reading instructor.  In addition, I attained my Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership from Fort Lewis College in the Summer of 2021.  Teaching is my calling and my passion.  Building a strong sense of belonging and community is one of the first priorities in my classroom!  I also love getting kids actively learning in the great outdoors, and Durango is the perfect place to do so!
