Educational Facilitator & High School English
Stephanie Binckes has worked in K-12 education for over 20 years. She began her career as a high school English and ELD teacher in Anaheim and Long Beach, California. After the birth of her son in 2001, she decided to “temporarily” leave the classroom, but during this time she began to work as a consultant training teachers throughout the western United States. She has worked for several ed tech companies and has extensive experience working with online reading and writing programs.
Stephanie has a B.A. in English from University of California, Irvine and an M.A. in education from Stanford University. She is passionate about teaching writing and is an emeritus fellow of the California Writing Project. Most recently, Stephanie served as a learning coach for her son who completed high school online.
Stephanie lives in Cypress with her husband and three children, and she can often be found at the OC fairgrounds barn with her daughter or at the baseball field with her son. She is excited to join the iLEAD team and to help families discover their own educational journey!
