Stefanie Pappalardo

About Me:

I’m a former general education classroom teacher who has transitioned to special education.  Born and raised in the Bay Area, I’m a grateful native Californian.  I went to San Jose State for my undergrad, and San Francisco State for my credentials and masters degree.

I have two daughters in college and four dogs.  I live in Half Moon Bay and feel like it’s paradise on Earth.  I feel blessed to live among the forest and ocean.  Live music with friends is my favorite way to relax and have fun.

Literacy is my passion, thus I hold a reading specialist credential and specialize in reading remediation.  Dyslexia and other language based learning disorders are a special area of interest of mine. 

I believe that all students can learn, especially with the right support.  Meeting students where they are at and offering them interesting and exciting content to expand their understanding is the magic of teaching. I believe that helping students get the pay off from working hard and moving beyond their self limiting beliefs is the most rewarding thing in the world.
