Hello, my name is Stephanie Hime, thanks for visiting my webpage!
This is my sixth year as a Clinton Red Tornado, and my 25th year to work in public education. I have taught Pre-K and High School (and everything in between!), I have been a cheerleading coach, test coordinator, Teacher of the Year, and I was recently honored as the Northwest Region K20 SKIE Finalist. This year I will continue my role as Southwest ELL Interventionist, Instructional Technology Specialist, and take on the duties of Assistant Principal.
I received a Bachelor of Science degree from SEOSU and a Master Degree in Education Administration from SWOSU. I am certified in Oklahoma and Texas to teach Early Childhood, K-8 Elementary, Middle School Social Studies, and Elementary Principal.
I have been married to Kevin for 31 years. We have three children; Erika, Bailey, and Brock. Erika is an Attorney and is married to Nick who is a Corporate Recruiter, they live in Austin, Tx. Bailey owns a clothing boutique, The Southern Bend, and is married to Brady, a Rancher and an Insurance Agent. They have two sons, Jason, who is three and Cale who was born this past March. Our son Brock is a graduate of the University of Arkansas, is the Marketing Coordinator for Fleetfeet in Fayetteville, and recently engaged to Regan.
My Educational Philosophy
I will work to maintain an environment within our school where each student receives a quality education through a shared vision with teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members. Every activity, lesson, and event that I am involved in will revolve around what is best for our students. I will strive to inspire and motivate students to reach a higher standard of excellence while collaboratively setting goals and implementing plans that will enhance the learning experience. I believe teachers should be facilitators, not dictators. Students will constantly be challenged through various activites that promote everyday growth.
I am excited about this school year!
I think great things are ahead for Southwest Elementary!
