My name is Maria Rancilio (ran-silly-o) and I am a 8th grade Social Studies Teacher at Stout Middle School!
I am a 2012 graduate of Wayne State University. In May of 2017, I finished my Master’s Degree from the University of Michigan-Dearborn with a degree in Learning Disabilities. This is my eighth year at Stout, but have been with the Stout family going on ten years. I started as a pre-student teacher, a student teacher, and a long term substitute, finally they decided to keep me!
When I am not in school, teaching or learning, I spend my free time binge watching Netflix, reading my latest Book of the Month Club book, watching the Tigers, running, and playing with my 7 year old pup, who acts like she is 6 months old, Emma, along with my moms two dogs, Maddie and Minnie! All three of them have more energy combined than I do, so they are always keeping me busy! During the school year, I coach Girls’ Track and Field and CANNOT wait until track starts again! Go Falcons!
I am very fortunate to have this opportunity teaching in a great community and awesome school. In my ten years of teaching at Stout, I have spent the majority of my teaching 7th grade Social Studies, so I am looking forward to the change this year to 8th grade! I am beyond thrilled to meet all of you and have a great 2020-2021 school year! 🙂
