Stephanie Wehman, Head of School


Stephanie Wehman joined La Crescent Montessori & STEM School as the Head of School in July, 2017.  Her life before LMSS has been focused on education in a variety of venues.  For the past six years, Stephanie served as the Head of School at another Minnesota Montessori charter school.  She has eleven years experience as a Montessori elementary educator in charter and private schools.  She has worked as a Montessori consultant and Dean of Schools as well.  In the midst of all of this, Stephanie also spent several years homeschooling her children.  Montessori education is a passion and, as you may guess from her work history, so is school choice.  In addition to her work at LMSS, Stephanie currently supervises Montessori student teachers for the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and is an instructor for the Christian Montessori Training Center at Bethany Global University.  Stephanie has an MA degree in Education and is Montessori certified at the elementary level.

Stephanie is married and has three amazing daughters.  When she is not at school, she will be found spending lots of time with them as they are her favorite people in the whole world. She loves to travel and spend time at her cabin.  Other things that bring her joy include gardening, hiking, camping, reading and cooking.
Being part of LMSS has been a wonderful experience and Stephanie is especially excited about the innovative educational option it provides to the community.   She can’t wait to share the news of this amazing little school with everyone who will listen and looks forward to watching LMSS grow as others discover the best kept secret in La Crescent.
