New Teacher Bio
Stephen was born in the sprawling metropolis that is Tokyo, Japan. He lived there until the age of 10 when he moved to Granger, IN and began attending Prairie Vista. He spent 1 year at Schmucker Middle School, and then spent 2 years at the then newly opened Discovery middle school (his thumb print is somewhere on the Archer logo!) Stephen got his B.A. in Japanese Language and Culture from Indiana University Bloomington and then got his M.S. in Acupuncture from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture.
Stephen is a die-hard martial artist: one of his life goals that he has already attained was to build a dojo on his own property. Another goal of his is to some day open up a martial arts school that sheds the flashiness of commercialized sport and helps others find their path of martial arts. Stephen is married to his college sweetheart and in the last year has enjoyed the pleasures of fatherhood thanks to his baby boy.
