Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Stephanie Burns

Hello!  My name is Stephanie Burns and I teach Middle School Social Studies and am the Social Studies and Religion Coordinator here at STS.  Up until August 24, 2018, I was called Mrs. McCarthy. On August 25, 2018, I remarried (I was widowed in 2014). Additionally, I serve on the Diocesan Social Studies Curriculum Committee. I have been at STS full time since 2003 in a variety of teaching positions.   Prior to that, I was a full-time stay-at-home mom to my daughter, Claire.

A little about myself, I graduated from Bishop McDevitt and went on to HACC and Penn State, Harrisburg, graduating with a Bachelor of Humanities with a concentration in American Studies.  I worked for several years at John Wanamaker department store before returning to Penn State for my teacher certification.  In the meantime I got married and then had my daughter.  I felt the desire to answer a calling to earn my Catechist certification, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I do have one daughter, Claire.  She is a recent graduate of West Chester University, receiving an undergraduate degree in music performance. Prior to her West Chester experience, she graduated from Trinity High School, and St. Theresa School!

My family has expanded to include Ashleigh, Matt, Erin, Molly, and Mikey. And a grandson, Dawson. God is good. I am so blessed!

I firmly believe in the value of a Catholic School education.  I am the product of Catholic Schools, I sent my daughter to Catholic schools, and now I teach here at STS.  I truly am blessed!
