Since then, Stacey has been constantly engaged in the study and practice of project-based learning as a vehicle for equity, across all grades. Stacey has been the founding teacher and director at two different HTH schools, K-8.
Stacey has had a long history working with the High Tech High GSE. From 2007 to 2010, she was one of the founding members of High Tech High’s Teacher Leadership and School Leadership graduate programs, earning a Master’s degree in School Leadership.
