"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." -Nelson Mandela
Tanisha Stanciel is a  transplant to Saint Louis, MO.  Before relocating to Saint Louis, she attended Missouri Western State University in Saint Joseph, MO, and graduated with a BS degree in Communication/Public Relations. After deciding to pursue education, she was hired as a teacher's assistant within the Saint Joseph School District.  She received her teaching certification and a Master's in special education,-emotional and behavioral disorders from Walden University. After relocating to Saint Louis, she then pursued her administration certification from Lindenwood University.
 
Ms. Stanciel enjoys being a part of a team where all students succeed socially, emotionally, and academically within the educational setting. Helping students achieve their educational goals through differentiated learning is her passion. Ms. Stanciel has spent a great deal of time focusing intervention to assist all students to succeed at various learning levels. 
 
When she is not educating children, she enjoys spending time with her 12-year-old son.  She also has Alopecia Areata. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the hair follicles.  Because of this, Ms. Stanciel is also the Greater Saint Louis area support group leader for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, which is located in California.
