My name is Terri Stephens. I have been at Fairview the majority of my life. I attended school here from Kindergarten through eighth grade. After high school and two years of college, I returned to Fairview as a Special Education Aide. While I was an aide, I continued going to school to finish my Bachelor’s degree. I have since obtained two Master’s degrees. I have been blessed to teach computers, speech therapy, math, science, social studies, and communication arts.

I love teaching, but also have many hobbies outside of school. I am an avid reader and habitual crafter. I love coming up with new ideas and seeing what I can craft out of various objects. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love quotes and the power of words in general. I’ll leave you with my favorite quote, “You are enough.”
