My name is Stephanie Dickson and I grew up in Los Angeles, California right near the beach and LAX airport. I began teaching for Higley in 2007 after moving to Arizona for the hot weather. I attended Scripps College in Claremont, California where I majored in Biology.
During my Master’s degree at UCLA, I conducted field research on baby desert tortoises. The data I collected has been included in a study that was published in 2015 in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Herpetological Conservation and Biology. In my free time, I like to play board games, read and spend time with my two daughters.
My goal is to nurture tomorrow’s scientists by serving as a guide who encourages the natural curiosity of human form and function. In my classroom, students are encouraged to be part of a positive and encouraging community of learning. Each of my students is a unique and important member of our classroom who will feel safe while diving into new diving into new academic challenges that will continue their growth as future scientists.
