Stephanie Holt, Buds (3K) and Sprouts (4K) Teacher

Stephanie was born and raised in Aiken. She and her husband Jason are the proud parents of two children, Natalie and Coleman. Stephanie has been teaching since 2005. She has a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from USCA and a Master's degree in Teaching with Technology from Ashford University. After teaching kindergarten and first grade in Aiken County Public Schools, Stephanie felt God leading her to St. John's SEED to share her love of God and her passion for teaching. She feels that the most exciting part of teaching is watching a child's "light bulb" go off. Stephanie enjoys sharing her love of learning with all the sweet little ones she has the privilege to teach here at St. John's SEED.
