Mrs. Stephanie Desjarlais


Hi! I am Stephanie Desjarlais, your child's second grade teacher! This is my 21st year teaching and I couldn't see myself anywhere else.  I have taught first and third grades and look forward to learning along side your child in second. I am thrilled to be at Nursery Road Elementary School- Arts Magnet to continue my teaching career. 

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 and renewed it in 2020.

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 who make our life more interesting. 

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 second grade!
