Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Cheryl Steffan
I always tell people that I have the most rewarding career because I am a teacher. I enjoy teaching and watching children blossom as readers and become stronger in their understanding of math concepts. I love to see the look on a child's face when they realize that they accomplished their learning goals. My teaching philosophy centers on creating an environment where all students can be successful. I also believe that learning is a partnership between the teacher, child, and their parents. I offer opportunities for parents to support their child's growth, and welcome parents to contact me if they have any questions or concerns.
Teaching is a second career for me. I earned my BS in Accounting from Canisius College and worked as a CPA in the accounting field for eight years. After being at home with my children for a number of years I returned to college and earned my MS at Canisius College in Elementary Education and Reading. My first year of teaching was in the Lancaster School District as a kindergarten teacher. The following year I began teaching math and reading in the Learning Center at Como Park.
