History

 

In the heart of 2020 pandemic, Kia Wiggins, a senior educator with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, Master's in Organizational Leadership, 8 years of classroom experience, and over two decades of combined lingual and STEP/coaching experience, decided to launch a unique tutoring program that fused 21st century educational strategies with modern extracurricular programs to positively influence learning. While instructing students through the new virtual platform, she noticed a decrease in basic reading and math skills. Students were struggling with learning, and many were not prepared for the next grade level. Out of a passion for Christ and teaching to promote students' academic success, STEPPIN' STONES, LLC  was created.
Mrs. Wiggins enjoys teaching about God and spending time with Mr. Wiggins and their dog, Luna. Mrs. Wiggins is also a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
