Meet Mrs. Nicole Stringer

We asked our teachers & staff a few questions so that you can get to know them better!

What year did you start working at St. Stephen?

Tell us about your education background & about your teaching/work experience.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas. I spent five years teaching second and fourth grades in Fayetteville, Arkansas. My husband and I moved to Frisco, Texas and I taught for two years in third grade. I took some time away from the classroom to take care of my family. Once my youngest son started school, I got my teaching certificate for Nebraska and started substitute teaching for a few years before deciding to come back to the classroom as a teacher at St. Stephen the Martyr.

The students! I love watching the students learn and grow. Every day is something new.
