This is Stephanie Plafker (pronounced just like it is spelled). She was born in The Bronx, NY, but grew up in Buffalo, NY. As a child, her family often spent time camping which continues to be one of her favorite pastimes. One of her earliest childhood memories is checking out the book Harold and the Purple Crayon from the public library. Back then you had to be able to write your name in the tiny space on the card in order to check out a book. Another book Stephanie remembers was the biography of Marie Curie, which sparked her interest to become a Scientist.
This is Mrs. Plafker's 15th year at Lynn Road Elementary, however, she has been a teacher for many, many, many more years. Her experience includes pre-school through 8th grade. She is married to David, has two children, Josh who is a graduate student at NC State, and Alissa, who is a junior at UNC Charlotte. Hannah, her 13 year old Plott Hound, and Kenly the cat complete her family. In her free time Mrs. Plafker enjoys working out at the gym, running, hiking, cooking, and gardening.
