PLS 6 Teacher


Hi! I'm Sam Stein. I have worked at Spero Academy since 2018, first as a para, then as an assistant teacher, and finally as a teacher! I have worked in PLS classrooms from grades 3-6. I got my Bachelors degree in Psychology in 2017 from Macalester College, and my Masters degree in Special Education with a licensure in Autism Spectrum Disorders from the University of St. Thomas in December 2022. I am passionate about helping students pursue their passions and interests, and teaching them the skills they need to live a happy and autonomous life. Some of my particular interests are in nonverbal communication, sensory supports, and how to make learning as fun and motivating as possible. I live in Minneapolis with my two cats, Mya and Joë. In my free time I like to do aerial arts and bake treats, especially anything with chocolate!
