Teacher Writer Spotlight: Stephanie Even

Posted by Merritt Moses on June 21, 2021

Stephanie Even has been with STEMscopes since June of 2017, making this her fourth year with the curriculum writing team! And we are so grateful to have her with us.

Stephanie Even Profile pictureBefore joining STEMscopes, Stephanie was a fourth- and fifth-grade science and math teacher for Cy-Fair ISD, located in northwest Houston. Her teaching experience combined with her education background (she earned her Bachelor of Arts in International Service and an Alternative Certification to teach in Texas) make her a standout addition to the curriculum team.

What Stephanie most enjoys about STEMscopes is that it enables her to stay connected to family life and work from home while staying involved in the education field. Finding that type of work was one of her personal goals when she took a break from teaching, and soon after, she learned about the STEMscopes summer writing program from a friend.

Now she has the best of both worlds and can work, write, and parent from the comfort of her own home. In particular, she enjoys writing about products that vary from state to state and the challenge of putting all the pieces together to meet specific standards in a certain state, country, or product. 

And she’s made quite an impact. As Curriculum Project Manager Brandi Nicholson said, “Stephanie is a great asset to our science writing team. She brings her elementary teaching experience into everything she writes. She is a great team member that we can always depend on to give us high-quality writing. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow as a writer into a team lead role.”

What does Stephanie enjoy doing outside of work? She and her husband love traveling and spending time with their two kids, ages four and one-and-a-half. They’re also expecting their third, a baby girl, to arrive in June! Stephanie is also an avid reader with a knack for musical talents. She plays the electric piano and sings with her band from church. 

Thank you, Stephanie, for all your hard work and contributions to our science curriculum!
