Meet the Teacher

Mr. Stephen SieverMr. Siever worked in the Construction industry for 30 years. 24 of those years he was self employed owning Cedar Hill Carpentry. He grew up working on a farm in the outskirts of Downingtown, Pa. Mr. Siever enjoyed playing football, baseball, rugby, and wrestling. In his free time, he loves to spend time with his family. Coaching his kids gives him the opportunity to watch his children grow athletically. Living on a farm that was established in 1814 allows him to raise chickens and pigs while plating a huge garden.
