Mrs. Steinhauer was raised in New Berlin, Wisconsin, and attended Good Shepherd’s Lutheran School for her grade school years.

She graduated from UW-Madison in May of 2018 with a double major in Elementary Education and Special Education.
Prior to her student teaching, Mrs. Steinhauer had three semester-long field work placements - 2nd/3rd grade special education, 5th grade, and 7th grade.
