Over the years, she has been instrumental in helping to develop the curriculum, culture, and traditions of the CDS Middle School. In the classroom she is known for her warmth, enthusiasm, and compassion. Stacey's love of literature is surpassed only by the pride she takes in her students and their work.

In addition to her official classroom duties, Stacey has helped both middle school and upper school students strengthen their executive functioning skills, writing, reading, character development, and build their self confidence with their work. As Chair of the MS Language Arts Department and 7th Grade Lead Teacher, she also works closely with her colleagues and helped many new teachers hone their skills. Over the past few years, Stacey has collaborated with the upper school administration and faculty on a rigorous project to articulate and align the language and literature curriculum between the two divisions.
