Ms. Stephanie Malm

Hello and welcome to Dutch Fork Middle School! You can anticipate that this year will be like any other we've had before!

My name is Stephanie Malm, and teach 7th grade geography. I have only been in South Carolina for 3 years. We moved here from Phoenix, Arizona, with a short stop in Montana. I live here with my husband of 30 years, Brad; my youngest daughter Brooke who is a sophomore at USC; my sister, who recently moved here from Colorado and is a 5th grade teacher in Columbia; and our two dogs, Leila and Nora. I have three other children who live in Michigan, Kentucky and Arizona. I love to read (I read everything - even the back of the cereal box!), cook and bake, and do crafts such as making cards and scrapbooking. And of course, I love teaching.

Because of the uncertainty in our community right now, our district has created a school that is only online called the FIVE Academy. I will be teaching online this year, and will still be teaching 7th grade geography. I am very excited to be trying this new form of education, but just like you, I am a little nervous. I have taken classes online, but only as a student. It will definitely be different being online as a teacher! However, I do believe that we will all learn from this experience, have some fun, and be able to look back at the end of the year and realize it wasn't so bad!

I look forward to a wonderful year with all of you. GO SILVER FOXES!
