Giovanna (Gigi) Steding was born into a military family, so she has lived all over the world! She has always considered Florida home, so after graduating with her B.S. Degree with Interdisciplinary Studies concentrations in Psychology, Sociology and Nutrition from Radford University in Virginia, she moved to Florida with her husband. Gigi worked for the state and for nonprofit agencies as a social worker for several years before teaching high school at Doris Sanders Learning Center and George Jenkins High School in the ESE self contained classrooms. She has one son, 7, who attends St. Joseph Academy and a daughter, 4, who starts in the fall.
