Stanley’s first year at St. Charles High

Despite being a new teacher at St. Charles High, Kimberly Stanley has been an educator for 12 years and doesn’t care to stop anytime soon. Her encouragement towards her students makes her a great fit for our school, and she is adjusting very well. Stanley teaches Special Education, and it’s no doubt that she belongs in the classroom leading her students.

“When I graduated college I was an English teacher, but then I got a job working in social services, so I did that for quite a while and then during that time I went back to school to get my special ed. certification.”

Stanley’s family helps her a lot with staying inspired and motivated, and the more the merrier.

“I’m married, this Halloween will be 12 years. I have three kids; 19, 21 and 27 and four step kids who are also grown.”

Stanley finds her job as a teacher important and well fitting thanks to the environment her school and her students provide. She enjoys helping students and feels like it is a great fit for her to be pursuing this as her career.

I like more of the smaller classes, the one on one, the getting to really help the students and help them feel included in school and successful in school.”
