Ms. R. Stepter

Dear families,

     My name is Raven Stepter, I am a Kindergarten Special Education teacher at the Matteson School. This is my second year as a teacher, I graduated from Northern Illinois University in the Spring of 2020. I majored in early childhood and special education. I have an ESL endorsement, which means that I am qualified to work with children whose primary language isn’t English. I am qualified to work with children with special needs up to 2nd grade. I am looking forward to working with your wonderful children.

     I decided to pursue a career in early childhood education, because as a young child I had a teacher that believed in me. This made me love learning and challenges! I would like to be the reason children look forward to coming to school and learning. I would like to teach the children to be the best versions of themselves! I will be supporting them academically but also emotionally, as I understand that life can be very difficult for some. The students in our class will learn to be brave, creative, kind, and hard working. I will be working closely with Ms. Martin to provide students with the necessary supports to ensure success!

     I will be sure to make myself available to families as needed since this years’ experience will be very different, since I’m coming in a little late. I hope that we the parents and teachers can work together to provide the children with the best learning experience possible. I will be available by phone, by email, or you can leave a message with Ms. Martin. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. This will be a great learning experience for all of us! I just want to stress that I am on your team! I am here for you and your kiddos. We will get through this school year together.
