Welcome to Ms. Steiner’s 3rd Grade Webpage!

Welcome! My name is Ms. Steiner and I am a proud third grade teacher. This is my fifth year teaching. I taught second grade for 3 years, and I taught third grade last year. I graduated in 2012 with my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Central Florida. I have always enjoyed working with children and knew at a young age that teaching would be my profession of choice. I started my teaching career here at BGK and I am so glad that I did! I am very excited about all that the 2017-2018 school year has to offer us and I look forward to getting to know you.
