Toddlers (Room 9)


Stephanie Soave

As the Toddler Center Coordinator and one of the Lead Teacher’s in Room 9, I’m excited to begin my 21st year teaching toddlers at Assumption. I have a teaching degree from Michigan State University in Special Education and more than  years of experience with children. I have been married for 31 years. Our oldest son, Robby, is an associate editor with a national newsmagazine and lives in DC with his wife. My youngest son Ryan graduated from MSU and works for a title company in East Lansing, where his wife is completing vet school As I spend time with the toddlers, I am reminded always about how fast the time goes, and how much fun it is along the way!

I will be starting my 12th year here at Assumption. I enjoy spending my day with the wonderful and loving staff, watching the young friendships develop, and seeing the growth that occurs over the course of the school year. I have an Associate’s Degree in Liberal arts from Oakland Community College. I have one son, Brandon, who is 21 years old and is attending Macomb Community College. I enjoy spending time with my family, working in the yard and walking.

This year is my 15th enjoyable year working with the toddlers. I love seeing their smiling faces and knowing they are in a happy and secure environment at Assumption. My husband Jim and I have three sons and 3 grandchildren. Jimmy, our oldest and Kevin our youngest are both Michigan State University graduates. Christopher is a Marine and attending college. Ethan just turned 11 years old. Jimmy and Diana (our daughter-in-law) and Madden, our granddaughter live in Virginia, and we just celebrated her 3rd  birthday. Our new grandson (Madden’s brother) was born in May of this year.  His name is Bryson.
