My Name is Ms. Stanley and I have been a diverse learner teacher here at Ryder for about 3 years. I have a bachelor's degree from Columbia College and a masters degree from National Louis University. Currently I am working towards a second Masters degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education. I am also the proud parent of 5 children. Two of my children attend Ryder and are proud Ryder Rams! I enjoy being adventurous and finding new things to do in Chicago. My teaching philosophy is to always teach beyond four walls and never teach inside a box. There are always many ways to get to the same destination, I encourage each child to find their own path. In my spare time I like to create fun memories with my children and find new things for us to do. I also enjoy going out to see a good movie and hanging out with close friends.
