Stephanie Guido, High School Classroom Teacher for Personal FinanceClassroom Teacher

BA, Patrick Henry College

Stephanie Guido teaches Personal Finance & Accounting and AP® US Government for HSLDA Online Academy. Her experience in both subjects is extensive.

At the age of 16, Stephanie began work for an accounting firm, where she quickly progressed from copying tax documents, to filing tax reports, balancing monthly client bank accounts in QuickBooks, and compiling financial services portfolios. Within a year of starting work, Stephanie was hired by her church to do their monthly bookkeeping and yearly accounting reports. Since that time, Stephanie has worked as an independent contractor, managing bookkeeping, payroll, and tax forms for multiple companies. She also completed a Financial Peace University course as a high schooler and used the lessons she learned there in managing her own finances, remaining debt-free through college.

She holds a BA in government from Patrick Henry College, graduating summa cum laude with highest honors. During her time at PHC, Stephanie participated in Moot Court, interned in Care Net’s legal department, and fulfilled her childhood dream of working on Capitol Hill by interning in Congressman Trent Franks’s (AZ) office. After college, she worked for the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, providing administrative support for the Commission on Non-Profit Accountability, commissioned by Senator Grassley. In this role, she worked with legal, religious, and non-profit experts from across the country to help religious non-profit organizations improve their internal regulation standards.

Prior to coming on campus at PHC, Stephanie completed twenty-seven PHC distance learning credits, so she has experienced online classes from a student’s perspective and is committed to cultivating a rich interactive experience and prompt teacher responses.

Stephanie lives in Texas with her husband Ben, a doctoral candidate in philosophy at Baylor University, and their two children, Rowena and Cedric. When Stephanie has any free time, she enjoys reading, baking, hiking, jigsaw puzzling, and tabletop gaming.

Stephanie has been teaching with the Academy since 2015.
