Meet Mrs. Ortmann
Hello, my name is Stephanie Ortmann, and I am pleased to be part of
Eastwood and Sturgis Public Schools.  I would like to welcome you to
Eastwood and my classroom. 
I have been in this area all of my life.  I grew up on a farm with my
parents and two younger brothers.  I graduated from Sturgis High School in
2000.  I went on to obtain an Associates of General Studies from Glen Oaks
Community College.  I transferred to Tri-State University (now Trine) where
I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education with a Middle
School Endorsement in Science in 2005.

I began my teaching career at Howe Military School right after college.  I
taught fifth grade for five years and middle school for two years.  I have been teaching at Eastwood since 2012 and I absolutely love it!

I have a wonderful family!  I am very happily married to my husband Michael.  We have two sons, Mason who is six, and Brayden who is one.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, cooking, baking, camping, and reading.

I am looking forward to an exciting year.  I believe communication is a
vital part of the success of your child.  Please do not hesitate to call
or email me with any questions or concerns.
