Mrs. Stephanie Desjarlais
Hi! I am Stephanie Desjarlais, your child's first grade teacher! This is my seventeenth year teaching, but my first year here at Nursery Road Elementary Arts Magnet School.
I am originally from Lexington, but now call Irmo home. I have lived in Irmo since getting married in 2008. My husband and I have two wonderful children. Our oldest, Allison, attends school with me at NRES-Am as a first grader. I love having her with me. Our youngest, Andrew, keeps us on our toes. He is a lively one year and acts all boy.
I attended Columbia College where I received my bachelors' in Early Childhood. I then pursued my master's from Francis Marion University in Instructional Accommodations. Later I worked and achieved National Board Certification in Literacy.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy sleeping in late and eating chocolate.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year in first grade!
