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. I was inspired to go into the teaching field because of former teachers that I had in grade school. I am a family person. I enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends. My favorite pastime activity would have to be fishing, but I also take pleasure in taking my crazy dog for walks. Also, I am a huge Cardinals fan. Go Cards!

This is my 14th year of teaching at Smithton C.C.S.D. #130. I am very excited to be teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies this 2018-2019 school year. I have always been interested in History and Geography. As a kid, I loved looking at maps. My parents would always take my brother and me to different historical sites during family vacations. A favorite pastime that I enjoyed as a kid was listening to my grandparents tell me their family stories. 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.
