Degrees and Certifications:
Stefanie Keller-Perkins grew up in Castroville, Texas, and graduated from Medina Valley High School in 1985. She is married with two kids - both alumni of Medina Valley. She studied early childhood education and special education at the University of Texas at San Antonio, gaining both her Bachelors and Masters degree while working in our community. She always had a special place in her heart for Special Education and thus began her career as an educator in the San Antonio Independent School District as a special ed teacher where she spent the next 26 years of her career. However, she remained living in Castroville close to her parents, and brother who has special needs. In SAISD, she focused on students with behavioral needs, residential and alternative placements, and special education compliance. Her positions as lead teacher, supervisor, coordinator, and eventually director allowed her to experience many facets of special education preparing her to return to her alumni as the Special Programs Director in 2016-17.
Stefanie Keller-Perkins is finally home in her position here as her heart has always been with Medina Valley and this beautiful community along the banks of the Medina. #allaboutthechild
