I am Stephanie Gaschen, Senior Teacher in the Mini Matador infant and toddler classroom. I am very excited to be at Texas Tech University Child Development Research Center! I graduated from Texas Tech in the spring of 1994 with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught in both public and private schools since graduation. While at the CDRC, I have been a preschool and toddler teacher before becoming a teacher in the infant classroom in 2016. I absolutely love teaching at Texas Tech Child Development Research Center. Being a teacher at the CDRC allows my passion for active learning to be a part of the daily routine. I am also passionate about working with lab students and student assistants. Being a role model and guiding them each and every day is rewarding. I am blessed to be part of a wonderful center.
