Stacey is very active with the Bessie B. Moore Center at the U. of A. She attends many of Rita Littrell's workshops. She enjoys hosting visiting international guests for lessons in her classroom as well as other activities.Stacey writes economics lessons for the primary grades because she feels there is a shortage of economics materials for the lower grades.
