Ms. Stefanski – Guidance Counselor
Ms. Stefanski is a huge asset to USP! Her dedication and relentless efforts to support youth is beyond imaginable. As you walk the halls of USP, you witness her interacting with the students and giving them the time and attention they need. We know she wears many hats in her role as Guidance Counselor, but I cannot thank her enough for guiding me, as a parent, to investigate and identify underlying issues for my youth’s success. Thank you!!
Mrs. Miller – 7th Grade Math Teacher
I am not that great at math and am still working on it, but Mrs. Miller helped me so much with little things that made a big deal. She went above and beyond to ensure that I got what I needed to know and she made sure I understood what was being taught. Overall, she helped me and even made me like math(a little) anyways, Mrs. Miller has definitely made my experience at PALCS really special.
Rose Owens – 5th Grade Teacher
In two short weeks, after returning from her leave, Mrs. Owens has already connected so incredibly to my student through daily announcements, assignment feedback, and lots of sharing and asking in virtual lessons. Her positivity is a breath of fresh air and is inspiring me to model how I assist my student with lessons in the same upbeat manner. She’s honest and frank, but encouraging and really makes the students think about not just their answer, but how and why they are using that thought process. Feeling very blessed right now to have her not only teaching my child, but influencing her as well.
