Welcome to Ms. Stahr's Teacher Page

I have been a teacher for fourteen years, seven of which have been at Corvallis. I believe children learn best when they are excited about the subject matter, have many opportunities to explore, and feel safe enough to take risks. I try to integrate art, ecology and community service into the curriculum whenever possible.   I live in Oakland with my husband, two cats and two dogs.

Inspired by
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. (attributed to Margaret Mead)

I earned a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University, and my teaching credential from Mills College.
