Ms. Stephanie Vogt

Hello! My name is Stephanie Vogt (pronounced “vote”) and I am so excited to be joining the first grade team! This is my first year at Settles Bridge, but my 8th year teaching. I have previously taught in 2nd grade, but the majority of my career has been spent in 3rd grade. I grew up in Marietta and graduated from Kennesaw State University with my degree in Early Childhood Education. After graduation, I taught in Marietta City for 7 years until last summer, when my fiancé, Bryce, and I bought our first house in Dawsonville, and I decided it was time to find somewhere closer to home. I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, camping, and lounging around the house with my fiancé and our dog, Oenomaus. I am looking forward to a wonderful year together!
