Ms. Stewart can't believe she's been teaching for 36 years, 28 at Pioneer and 8 in the Bethel School District. Most of that time has been spent with 6th graders because she loves their humor, curiosity, independence, and boundless enthusiasm. Equally amazing to her is the way 7th graders demonstrate grit, passion for social justice, and willingness to challenge the status quo.
Although she's taught hundreds of children through the years, two former students will always be extra special: her son Andrew and her daughter Kelly. Both say that Mom was always tougher on them than anyone else.
Ms. Stewart graduated from the University of Puget Sound and did graduate work at Seattle Pacific University. She earned her master's degree in Reading and Literacy at Capella University. In her spare time she loves to be with family, read, cook, garden, shop for shoes, and entertain friends.
