Bio of Stephany Spencer-LeBaron
~ Stephany Spencer-LeBaron is a retired teacher on her endless summer – a Creative: Artist, poet, performer, and musician. Born in Chihuahua, Mexico of American parents, she spent most of her life in the Western U.S.; married young, became widowed at twenty-one.
Left with a toddler, she raised her while putting herself through College,
graduating from East LA College in 1970 with an AA in Music;
UCLA in 1973 with a BA in Sociology.
Then did Post-graduate work in Liberal Arts at California State University, Northridge, obtaining a Teaching Credential in 1976.
A born teacher, Stephany Spencer-LeBaron taught Elementary School for thirty years, specializing in Bilingual Education and Music. Then took Early Retirement in 2001 to pursue other creative interests.
Multi-talented, a multi-instrumentalist in music, the Multies multiplied to where they began crying, “Which interest is on ‘first’?!” Because in 2006 the Muse led Stephany to the California Writers Club where she officiated as Programs Chair while honing her skills as an Author.
She’s presently working on three different manuscripts: A book of poetry, aphorisms, and maxims. A children’s novel. And her Memoir, she a proud descendent of Dr. Francis Le Baron, MD. (See: “The Nameless Nobleman,” by Jane G. Austin,” a cousin).
And the not-so-proud niece of Ervil LeBaron, a notorious serial killer monikered “The Mormon Manson.”
Though fascinated with the better part of her heritage,
She was not born to privilege –
Other than having inherited gifts for such as writing verse,
For better or worse.
This is her double-edged sword:
A gift and a curse.
But Life goes on,
Comes, then’s soon gone.
Says the emblem of the California Writers Club.
If you look closely, you may see her “sailing on,”
“Writing” on a song “write” now!
“Dwell in possibilities,” said Emily Dickinson.
Possibilities are what keep Stephany from falling off.
