Stephanie Schmoker attended University of Iowa and Loyola University studying English and political science/pre-law.  She got her early childhood education at College of DuPage and Erikson Institute Chicago. She served as a CASA advocate while teaching preschool in Naperville.  She also owned a boutique in Geneva named The Pink Hippo/ Ella’s Pink Bowtique. Stephanie grew up in Sheridan where she currently resides with her boyfriend. She enjoys cooking, reading, fresh flowers and growing food – most notably a pineapple patch at her parents’ vacation home in Florida.

WHAT I ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING AT ST. MARK’S: Being able to develop and implement a creative and academic curriculum in a spiritual environment and watch the children learn and grow.
