STEPHANIE FORSYTHE

Lower Elementary Assistant Teacher

Stephanie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Pennsylvania State University and became fascinated with the Montessori Method while researching schooling options for her young son. She previously lived and worked in Philadelphia as an executive assistant and moved to the Charleston area in 2012 with her husband Keith. Her son Jackson has been enrolled at Sundrops Montessori School since 2014 and inspired her to pursue teaching full-time. She worked as a substitute teacher throughout the Charleston County school district in both traditional and Montessori environments – eventually finding the greatest joy guiding students in mixed-aged classrooms here at ECMCS.

Stephanie lives with her husband and son in West Ashley and is active in the local arts community. She is a company member at Theatre 99 – Charleston’s home for improvisational comedy. In her free time, you can find her on the beach with her family, enjoying the culinary delights of the downtown, and playing in the park with her son.
