Hello, my name is Fermin martinez and I am here to tell you a litle bit about this wonderful lady that I see as a second mother. I have known Mrs. Stoebe since 2009 when I had her as a teacher. She has always been there for me; whenever I needed someone to talk to, she is always there for me. She has always helped me to be on the right path in life. She has helped me find jobs when I needed a job. She is there to help me. She would take time out of her day to come and visit me and to check if me or my family needed anything and she would not hesitate to help us with what ever it was we nedded. She has a special space in my heart because no one ever showed as much interest in me as she does. She does not hesitate to help people when they need help.
Where do I start with Mrs. Stoebe??? Mrs. Stoebe was my 5th Grade teacher and made my last year at Teravista the best one yet. She has advanced me so much in writing, and I just wouldn't be the same without her. Mrs. Stoebe is the best teacher any kid (or adult) could ever ask for, and because of that, she really is a LifeChanger! Love you Stoebester!!!!!!
Stephanie Stoebe is one of the most unique individuals I've ever known.
It wouldn't seem possible that someone could have such sustained passion for children year in and year out, but she has. Daily, she does the impossible.
In fact, challenges only make her shine more brightly.
Give her theost privileged kid and she'll make them fall in love with learning. Give her the least privileged kid and she'll do the same.
Her ability to teach a diverse group of students is innate but is also strengthen by her own love of learning. She refuses to ever let learning be boring. She goes out and seeks learning opportunities to always be a master of her craft in the most cutting-edge way.
Outside of the classroom, she leads teachers to be just like her. She is a part of advocacy groups, constantly trying to make the profession better for kids, and also surrounds herself in content and pedagogy training and teaching.
Her resume speaks for herself, but I'm here to say that she's the real deal and I aspire to have her same level of passion.
She's a natural talent, an incredibly hard worker, and a gift to education that I hope this state holds onto forever.
My life is changed because I know her.
Mrs. Stoebe is an absolute gem of a teacher. My wife and I are blessed to have a daughter that loves school and is completely self motivated to do well in all things. For us, Mrs. Stoebe stoked the fire in our daughter, truly pushing her to her full potential. She challenges students to be the best they can be. She does it in a caring and loving way. It's no wonder she has all of her "kids" come back for visits with their favorite teacher. By emphasizing the use of technology in the classroom she is preparing her students for the future. She seems to have endless energy and enthusiasm for her work and her students. If teachers were paid on their overall success and production Mrs. Stoebe would be a millionaire.
I was fortunate enough to have Mrs. Stoebe teach 2 of my children. She was able to challenge one of my boys one year and then able to be patient, encouraging, and supportive with my other son that struggled and need some extra time. While being able to teach such different children, she also increased their self confidence without making one bored or the other feel overwhelmed and as a result they both succeeded.
Mrs. Stoebe made a huge difference in their lives and their attitudes toward school.
Thank you again Mrs. Stoebe of all you have done for my children. We love you!
I'm a graphic designer at ATPE, and I've had the honor of working with Mrs. Stoebe on several projects for the association. Stephanie has an undeniable passion for teaching and learning that she shares with her students and everyone she meets. Every time I see her with her students, my heart swells as I see the connection she has with them. I've never seen kids so happy to be in class as they are with Mrs. Stoebe. She never fails to find an innovative way to make learning FUN! She's always the first to volunteer to help us out with a project, whether it be after a full day of classes or at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and I pray that my son is fortunate enough to have a teacher like her one day.
Ms Stoebe is an amazing teacher and advocate for education. My son was so lucky to have her as a teacher and experience her enthusiasm and love for teaching and learning. She really goes above and beyond for each of her students.
I worked at Snelson Golden Middle School in Georgia with Stephanie. She was a very good teacher and was held in high esteem by faculty, staff, and students. I have followed her career after she moved to Texas. I believe she has earned this honor.
I am deeply honored to have received this nomination for the National Life Group Lifechanger of the Year. I strive to not only help my students find their voice in school, but to help my students' parents and fellow teachers find their voice. When we work together as a community to educate our children, we can then go on to educate our policymakers and make real changes in the future of every child.
