Stephanie Ingram passionately believes being an active member of the union is a critical resource to help educators become better equipped to support their students and each other.
“No one should feel burned out after only five years in public education. But more and more of our students are coming to us with needs greater than could’ve been anticipated. The union offers the best opportunity for educators to grow their skills and ability to advocate for their students and themselves.”
Ms. Ingram began teaching in the Colonial School District in 2001, after one year at the St. Jones Behavioral Center teaching children and young adults in residential care. Over the past 17 years, she has taught third and fourth grades in Colonial.
Prior to becoming DSEA President in the Fall of 2018, Ms. Ingram served in a variety of union leadership roles on both the State and Local levels.
She was elected DSEA Vice President in 2017. She has served on the DSEA Executive Board, as President, Vice President, and Secretary of the Colonial Education Association, and as a building representative in the schools she’s worked in.
Ms. Ingram earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Delaware State University in 2000. She was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, but moved to Delaware and attended public schools in the Colonial School District until her graduation from William Penn High School.
