She knows how to balance her professional and personal life. As she has maintained to keep her profile low, there is no more information found about her.
How does Stephen feel about all the attention his mother is receiving?
“Oh man, that’s the worst,” Steph Curry said on the ESPN’s “Highly Questionable” last month when asked about how tired he gets of hearing people talking about his mom’s looks. “Obviously, she’s definitely a beautiful lady and I guess the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree…
She definitely gets her TV time when she comes to support myself and my brother at our games, so I mean, hey, I’ll take in stride. Just be respectful about it. You don’t have to talk too much trash.”
Sonya’s Montessori school the Christian Montessori School is in Lake Norman, North Carolina. As a youth, Steph, and his siblings all attended that school. The school was a family affair, in addition to his siblings and his mother being there, Steph said his aunt was a teacher and his grandmother was the cook. According to the school’s website, it was founded in 1995 by Dell and Sonya. She was featured extensively in a 2013 article in Montessori Life.
