Preschool- Mrs. Eva Stephens
As a long time resident of San Mateo, living here for over 40 years, I am so happy to be joining the Beresford community.
I’ve been in special education for 15 years, 11 of those years as a special education preschool teacher. I love collaboration within the special education team, especially with the families of our students.
I earned an undergraduate degree in Communicative Disorders, and a graduate degree in Special Education along with teaching credentials at San Francisco State and San Jose State Universities. My teaching experiences have been in both San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. In both my studies and in my work I am passionate about collaboration, inclusion and equity.
When I am not in my classroom, you can usually find me outdoors. I love swimming, kayaking and hiking. I am a huge sports fan. I enjoy gardening with my husband. We have two daughters, two dogs and two turtles. The daughters are grown up, one lives in Napa, the other in Sebastopol; the dogs and turtles live with us here in San Mateo.
I am thrilled to be on Team Beresford--GO BEARS!
