#KnowYourPelicans: Stephanie Rapciak
Middle School Science Teacher
What is your favorite thing about Packer?
The people. Each day I am inspired by the kindness of my colleagues and students, their capacity to learn, and their humor!
Describe a favorite or memorable moment in your classroom at Packer.
I most enjoy the times when students are engaged in design work in my classroom, such as developing experiments to explore force using a cart, track, and pulley. It is rewarding and inspiring to see students take creative control and think of new and interesting solutions.
Name a work of art, literature, music, or film that you hold dear and explain its influence on you.
A book that has resonated with me is Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. I enjoy learning about and discussing human behavior, and this book provides a really interesting biological perspective.
What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?
People might not know that I hiked along the Camino de Santiago a few years ago. My trip spanned three weeks and I walked 270 miles.
