Stacey grew up in Eugene, Oregon, went to college in southern Illinois, and then moved to Arizona, where she began learning Spanish and earned a Master in Teaching English as a Second Language (MTESL) degree through the Linguistics Department at Arizona State University. The MTESL program was geared toward adult education, and she taught beginning English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes for adults while she was there.
After graduation, Stacey returned home to earn her middle/secondary initial teaching license in language arts and ESOL through the University of Oregon. She taught English language arts and English language development (ELD) in Salem-Keizer School District's Teen Parent Program for two years. Then, she moved to Greater Albany School District, where she taught middle school ELD for four years, served as the K-12 school support specialist for English language learner programs for three years, and taught high school ELD for over two years.
Stacey started working at Oregon State University in January 2012. She is fascinated by language acquisition research and program/curriculum development. She feels driven by her love of working with students from diverse backgrounds and helping teachers figure out how to improve achievement for all students.
