Stephanie Banner has had a longtime love of reading and writing from a young age, when she wrote fictional stories on pieces of copy paper that she stapled together. She went on to take AP English classes throughout high school, earn a B.A. in American Literature from U.C.L.A., and a M.A. in Professional Writing from U.S.C. During her time at USC, she published her grandfather’s biography! Since then she’s written her own memoir and has a long-term goal of getting it published.
Teaching high-school English and History has always been a lifelong goal and she’s so excited to have achieved it at Fusion Academy Mission Viejo. Before her time at Fusion, she was a real estate agent, freelance contract writer, and legal assistant. But her proudest life endeavor is being mom to four great kids- the oldest being 19-years-old and the youngest, 5-years-old.
When she isn’t revisiting her favorite novels- The Glass Castle, The Alchemist and Untamed, she enjoys reading new novels, weight training, baking, traveling, and meditating.
