Stephanie F.

Hi there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a 1 st Degree Black belt in Kajukenbo that has lived in Northern California all my life. I’ve been practicing martial arts for over 19 years and teaching for over 12 years
and I also spent several years as a substitute Paraprofessional for the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District. Over all the years that I’ve taught and continue to teach, I’ve worked with toddlers all the way up to teenagers, as well as children with special needs.

When I’m working with and looking after kids, I like to keep them engaged with playful physical activities as well fun mental activities likes arts and crafts and board games.  You might find me singing and
dancing silly with the kiddos or coloring with them, or even just talking to them about their individual interests.  I like to get to know kids and make sure that they know they’re important and cared for while
keeping them busy and having fun. I love being able to positively impact the next generation and help them learn new things!

During the day I’m a regular ole IT Analyst but in my spare time I like to cook, exercise, read or listen to a book or podcast, and spend time with friends and family!
