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!!!
