Welcome to Third Grade!

My name is Stephanie Penney (aka Mrs. Penney).  I am so excited to be part of the Third Grade team here at Cascade Elementary!  I am not only new to this school, I am also new to Washington.  I recently moved to Renton from Boise, Idaho where I have taught first and second grade for the last 15 years.  I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and then moved to Salt Lake City, Utah to attend college at a small private college named Westminster.I also taught 2 years of second grade in Salt lake City too.

I have two children who will also be attending Cascade Elementary this year.

I love teaching reading, math and writing but my passion lies with Science, Technology, and Engineering.  I love photography and never leave home without some sort of camera.

I am excited to meet the students and their families!  I always say that it take a village to raise a child and I am very honored that you have allowed Cascade Elementary and myself to be apart of that Village.

My door is always open, so please feel free to stop in, call, or email me with any questions!  Here is to a GREAT year!
