My name is Stephanie "Essie" Hengeveld, and I am a special education teacher at Fairview. Come find me in our brand new classroom!
I have a bachelor's degree in Economics and Psychology from Scripps College in Claremont, CA. From there, I attended Portland State University in Oregon, and earned a Master's in Education and certification to teach social studies and special education. I have been teaching in special education ever since. As a result of my work in self-contained classrooms for students with emotional and behavioral challenges, I am a supporter of the Collaborative Problem Solving philosophy. Come ask me about it, if you are curious.
