My name is Cody Stephens
I am a graduate of Mercer University with a degree in Engineering. I later attended Armstrong State University to obtain my Masters in the Art of Teaching with a specialization in Mathematics. I have been teaching Mathematics since 2014 in Chatham county and I am excited to start my first year at South Effingham High School.
My philosophy in the classroom is to take the fear out of mathematics and make it attainable for all students. Math teaches a way of thinking and problem solving that can be used in all areas of education and life. I hope to help students see past the numbers and letters and to see the big picture in order to answer the question math teachers hate to hear....."When am I ever going to use this?"
I have lived in Effingham county since 2011 and have two small children (2 years and 3 years). I enjoy being active outdoors, going to the beach, and spending time with my family.
I'm looking forward to an AWESOME year!
