Mrs. Berry's 7th & 8th Social Studies Site

Hello, my name is Stephanie Berry!  Here is a little bit about me.  I did my undergraduate program at McKendree University and my graduate program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.  In 2013, I was honored by being in the top ten History teachers in the State of Illinois, and I received a Certificate of Excellence in teaching American History.  In 2022-2023, I participated in I3: Inclusive, Inquiry-Based Social Studies for Illinois class with the University of Illinois and Illinois State Board of Education to learn all about the revised Illinois Social Science Standards. I was inspired to go into the teaching field because of former teachers.  

This is my 19th year of teaching at Smithton C.C.S.D. #130.   I am very excited to be teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies this 2023-2024 school year.  I have always been interested in History, Civics, and Geography.  Everyone has a story to tell! What is your story?  Your story can impact the world.  Let's impact the world positively as we venture through life.
