From teaching to volunteering, Stacy Tanner has worked in the field of education for nearly 15 years. Born and raised in a family of educators in Southern California and from a father who immigrated to the United States, Stacy’s love of teaching, learning, and language was nurtured from an early age. As a young professional, Stacy served as a teacher, site director, and family consultant in early childhood. After completing a graduate degree from the University of Michigan (ELMAC) with an ESL Endorsement, she’s been teaching English Learners for the last 3 years in Novi Community Schools and also served at an EL Coordinator for two districts. When she’s not in a school, you’ll find her outside teaching horsemanship to people of all ages. She looks forward to working on the MITESOL board and supporting ELL teachers who dedicate their time and efforts to these amazing learners.
