She has a Masters in Library Science from Kutztown University and a Masters in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from New York University, with a specialization in reading instruction. Prior to pursuing her library degree, she taught kindergarten in Pennsylvania and second grade in New York. Steph has two children: Miranda, age 15 and Nick (a Montessori Academy alum!), age 12. When she is not reading, Steph enjoys working in the garden, hiking with her husband and kids, and daydreaming about travel.
