Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Stephanie Bangston

This is my first year teaching at Hillcrest Middle School, and I am so glad to have joined this wonderful team!

I have my degree in child psychology from the University of Minnesota and a teaching certificate from Grand Canyon University.  I am certified in Secondary ELA (grades 6-12).  Between teaching and working as a special education paraprofessional, I have four years of experience in education.

I am originally from Minnesota, but I have lived in nine states, including Arizona!

My hobbies are reading, playing piano, singing, and ballet.

My favorite book of all time is Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
