Mrs. Stephanie Witgenstein


     My name is Stephanie Witgenstein, and I teach the Tuition Kindergarten program here at Willow Creek Elementary.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Idaho State University, and have taught kindergarten in the West Ada school District for 26 years.

     I love teaching kindergarten at Willow Creek, and I am so happy that we are part of a school community where our students can learn in such a positive and nurturing environment.  I believe that teachers who love teaching, teach students to love learning.  In our classroom, we will create an environment that is both nurturing and enriching, and I hope to instill a lifelong passion for learning.

     I look forward to a great year with your children, and as we work together, they will grow to be independent thinkers and problem solvers as they develop a love of school and learning. Thank you for sharing your children with me.  I look forward to a fantastic year in kindergarten!!
