Hello! My name is Stacey Mankoff-Kirouac and I am so thrilled to be an English teacher for IVLA. I have extensive experience in the online learning environment, having taught online for both community colleges and public schools in California. I earned my bachelor’s degree in English from University of Nevada, Las Vegas, my California single subject state teaching credential in English from National University, and my Master’s degree in English literature from California State University, Sacramento.

I live in Bakersfield, CA with my husband Keith, my Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Basil, and our six cats, Jezebel, Dorian, Twee, Lannister, Sweeney, and Delilah. In our free time, we love to travel-in fact, we are planning on moving to Spain at the end of 2020! My favorite authors are Oscar Wilde and F. Scott Fitzgerald, my favorite band is Dave Matthews Band, and my favorite shows include Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, The Good Place, and The Office.
