Perryville High School

i r

Hi!  My name is Stephanie Stoverink.  I am a special services teacher and the color guard coach for Perryville High School.  I spend most of my day in the English department, co-teaching English I, English III, and English IV.  However, here's how I got here...

I was born and raised in Staunton, Illinois - a small town, approximately 40 miles northeast of St. Louis.  However, my father had grown up in Gordonville, MO, and all my life, I knew this was where I wanted to be.  In 2004, I graduated college from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and moved down to Southeast Missouri, looking to start my career!

I started my career off as a special services' paraprofessional, at Kelly Elementary, (Benton, MO).  The following 2 years, I worked as a special services' teacher for Kelly Middle School.  I then transferred to Scott County Central Elementary, (Sikeston, MO), where I was an early childhood special services' teacher; teaching students, ages 3-5, with special needs.  At the end of my 4th year with Scott County Central, I accepted a position at Perryville High School, as a special services' teacher, co-teaching within the English department and as the PHS Color Guard coach.  

Although this is just merely my first year here at PHS, I have come to admire the dedication this school has for its students and toward the community.  I am very lucky to be a part of the PHS team and am extremely proud to be a Pirate!!!
