Teacher Tuesday: July 18, 2017

Stephanie Brennan, an amazing K-3 Life Skills Support teacher at Whitemarsh Elementary School in the Colonial School District — and this week’s #TeacherTuesday — learned at an early age how much she loved supporting others. She was a 15-year old volunteer working for the summer with a 19-year old student with significant multiple exceptionalities. The challenge was to help the young adult strengthen his arm by moving his forearm and hand across his lap to his mouth.

Stephanie says, “One day this child would independently use a spoon to eat. We were working so hard on a skill so many people take for granted. I was hooked…. I wanted to be a teacher to be part of something bigger than all of us.” (She’s pictured here in front supporting a student.)
