Stacy Endman is ecstatic to return to Cleveland High School after graduating in 1998. She believes so strongly in the mission of the CORE program and its ability to provide students with the tools to think and question the world around them. Additionally, at Cleveland, Stacy was very active in the school’s Speech and Debate and Drama program and served as the team’s president her Senior year. On the team, she won many local league tournaments, collegiate invitational meets, and placed in the State. In 1997, she attended the National Speech and Debate tournament and tied for the national championship in Duo Interpretation. Her love of performing led her to New York University. She graduated with a BFA in Theater from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a minor in Sociology.
In order to survive living in New York, Stacy spent her spare time coaching students at Manhattan’s Stuyvesant High School. She found she loved mentoring students and helping them discover their voices and craft their own unique messages through the art of communication. It was not long after that Stacy decided to pursue teaching. She moved to the midwest and earned her Masters of Arts in Teaching at the University of Indianapolis.
Stacy taught English, Speech and Theater in Indianapolis for 5 years. In 2012, she decided to leave the midwest for a completely different climate and continued her teaching and coaching career in Phoenix, Arizona. There, she reconnected with a fellow CORE and Speech and Debate alum. In 2013, she married that CORE alum and three years later they welcomed their first son, Nolan, a spirited boy who always keeps them laughing and on their toes.
