Meet Ms. Ande Wallace

E-mail: Ande.Wallace@sfasu.edu

Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Ande Wallace, and I am so excited to be a part of the SFA Charter School family. I grew up in Nacogdoches and come from a family full of SFA alumni. I graduated from SFA in 2016, where I received a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. Throughout my four years of teaching in area and rural schools, I have taught kindergarten and fourth grade math and science. It is a joy to see the growth in a child throughout the school year. I look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing with you and your child in fourth grade this year at the SFA Charter School.

Meet Ms. Stephanie Creel

E-mail: screel@sfasu.edu

I received both my Bachelor of Science in education and a master’s degree in education from SFA. My areas of specialization are early childhood education and reading.

My teaching career began in 2003 as a kindergarten teacher with the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District. I continued teaching kindergarten in Cy-Fair until I accepted a kindergarten position at the SFA Charter School in 2008. In 2017, I had the opportunity to teach second grade. Then in 2019, I began teaching fourth grade. I am excited to partner with your family for a phenomenal year.

I gained my EC-6 alternative certification in 2016, and I taught prekindergarten at Nacogdoches ISD for two years. This will be my third year in kindergarten at the SFA Charter School.

I worked with prekindergarten and kindergarten students as a teacher assistant at Nacogdoches ISD for 15 years. I joined the SFA Charter School family in August 2016. Working in kindergarten is a gratifying experience, and the academic and personal growth the students acquire throughout the year is amazing. I am looking forward to another successful year.
