Hello! I am Stephanie Christopherson, and I am the Special Education Resource Teacher at Courtney Elementary School. I came to Courtney in the fall of 2015 and have loved working here ever since! We have a special school where students are challenged and cherished.
I attended Appalachian State University and graduated there with my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, and my graduate degree in School Counseling. I began my education career working as a school counselor for 13 years. After that, I entered the joyful world of a kindergarten teacher for 7 years. Upon feeling a calling to work in special education, I studied to earn an additional teaching certification in special education and began this new journey in my life at Courtney Elementary!
I have been married to my husband for 21 years, and have a 17-year-old son. I enjoy spending my free time with them. We go to lots of basketball games, travel to new places, and watch a lot of movies together. I have a very happy life that revolves around God, family, friends, and students!
