Mrs. Kathleen Stephens
Welcome to Mrs. Stephens' class and to the world of Business, Marketing and Finance.
Here is some information that former students wanted to know about me: 😊
I am married and have one child; a son who graduated from Spring Mills High School in May 2016 and is now in college. He is the light of my life; so if you are in my class, you will hear “Jim” stories. 😉 I also have two terrier fur babies. You will hear about them too.
When I get a moment or two to relax, I like to drink coffee, read, do puzzles of any kind, walk and help rescue dogs. 🐕
I am a lifelong learner and hold several degrees which include:
Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in International Finance and Economics from Frostburg State University, 1989
Masters in Teaching degree Early Childhood and Elementary Education from College of Notre Dame of MD, 2005 and received my Secondary/Adult education certification training from Shenandoah University.
I am currently working on another Masters Certificate in Administration, Technology and Online Instruction at Liberty University.
My passion is to help my students learn how to “adult” in the real world and become self sufficient, responsible and productive members of the community.
I teach the following classes at SMHS:
1st period - Marketing Principles
2nd period - Marketing Applications
3rd and 6th periods - Sports and Entertainment Marketing
4th Period - Personal Finance
5th Period - Cardinal Corner SBE
If community service and/or learning how to "Brand" yourself or a business idea is your thing, then you should definitely check out some of the clubs I advise at Spring Mills High. These clubs include:
DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America)
FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America)
NTHS (National Technical Honor Society)
Junior Civitan International
Cardinal Corner SBE (The school store at Spring Mills High School)
If you have questions about any of my classes or want to come by and say "Hey!" I can be found in room 401 right next to the school store.
I look forward to meeting you!
