Hello My Name Is...

<Sonya Stewart>

I have been a teacher here at Douglas Elementary for the past 7 years.  During my first four years, I taught fourth grade language arts. Three years ago I moved to fifth grade to teach my favorite subjects math and science. 

I feel that I have been given a great privilege and responsibility to prepare our children of today for tomorrow's future. I hope to inspire my student to set goals, work hard, be dedicated, and persevere in achieving those goals, so they will be mature, well rounded, successful, independent citizens ready to give back to their community. 

I myself, enjoy challenges that keep me motivated to always do my best and get better at whatever the challenge my be. One important challenge is to continue to improve my teaching skills and methods, so my students will be able to relate and apply what they are learning to real world experiences. I am also a runner. I have completed several 5Ks and will complete my second marathon this February, so it is a daily task to train for improvement on speed and endurance.  

On the home front, I have two boys, and I'm engaged to a wonderful man that has three boys. I also sponsor a child from Bolivia through Compassion International that is also a boy.
