At Ivery Steps we seek to awaken the inventor, the problem solver, and the world changer in every student. Our mission is a reflection of our founder, Stephanie Ivery, who is an engineer, educator, entrepreneur, and encourager.
Stephanie’s love for engineering was sparked in high school as she competed in design competitions and met future engineers (students) and engineering professionals. She went on to graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, AL. She later worked for L'Oreal as an Industrial Quality Chemist and then as a Material Engineer with Panasonic in the area of Environmental Banned Substances.
Through tutoring and enrichment, Stephanie is able to inspire reluctant science and math students and challenge science and math enthusiasts to understand that their ideas can literally change the world.
After corporate jobs, Stephanie discovered her true gifting and calling to teach and train others and began her career as an educator. She was a high school math teacher in the Georgia school system for Dekalb and Henry counties and also worked in afterschool and tutoring programs for Bibb County and Atlanta Public Schools.
At Ivery Steps, we are Simply Building Learners each day.
Throughout the year, Ivery Steps hosts STEAM Efficiency, Math and Music Camp Intensives, and camps throughout Atlanta. Igniting the love for STEM in even more students. Stephanie also travels domestically and internationally to promote STEAM learning and entrepreneurship.
A natural creator and problem-solver, Stephanie’s warm, engaging personality drives students to want to learn and try harder to master new concepts and skills. Stephanie encourages students to think totally outside the box.
In 2012 Stephanie was apart of a team that went on a mission trip in Monrovia, Liberia. She had the opportunity to teach students in school, and aided in teaching a Praise & Worship Workshop/Concert.
