Mr. Stephen Manney

My name is Stephen Manney.  I have been teaching 3rd Grade at Kenneth L. Hermansen Elementary School since 2007.  Prior to that I worked at B. J. Ward Elementary School for one year as a Special Education teacher's assistant.  My wife, Larissa, and I have one child - our daughter Mia - who is starting college this fall.  I currently live in Naperville with our two labrador retrievers, Beckham and Heath.  When I am not teaching school, I enjoy reading, spending time with my wife and daughter, and watching my daughter play soccer - something that I am looking forward to doing for another 4 years, as my daughter will be playing soccer at DePauw University in Indiana.  I enjoy history and traveling with my family.

I received my Master's degree from DePaul University, graduating in 2007.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Houghton College in Houghton, New York.

I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador in South America where my parents were working at the time.  I have lived in the US since moving here to begin college in 1987.
