What parents are saying: "I could not agree more that SCDS is doing an amazing job on all fronts. My child enjoys going to school, likes the curriculum and the faculty and has made a number of new friends... all good! Thank you for all you and the faculty and staff at SCDS do day in and day out."

The Scottsdale Country Day School staff have been carefully selected to represent a plethora of educations, experiences, and unique skills to ensure each of our students are afforded a rounded education. Staff at the SCDS charter goes above and beyond when it comes down to helping each individual student be successful and will often be found after school working with students individually or in small groups.

Open communication is imperative for each child to be successful and our staff encourages parents to be involved with their child to optimize learning opportunities.

Erin Stanek

Hello! My name is Mrs. Stanek and I will be teaching kindergarten at SCDS. This will be my 21st year teaching kindergarten and my 6th year at SCDS. I grew up in Indiana and went to Ball State University where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught 14 years in Indiana before moving to Arizona. During my time off I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I also enjoy running, hiking, biking and kayaking. I have three little chihuahuas named Bandit, Bentley, and Brooks who also enjoy hiking and kayaking.

I believe that each child is unique and learns in his or her own way. In my classroom we will do a lot of fun and exciting lessons that promote different learning styles. We will also be working on certain life skills such as, patience, sharing, kindness and respect. I'm looking forward to another great year at Scottsdale Country Day School.
