Hi! I am Stephanie Mooney, assistant principal for 8th grade at Curtis Middle School. This school year begins my 17th year in education and my 8th year as a campus administrator. Prior to becoming an assistant principal, I served as a middle school classroom teacher for nine years. I spent most of those years teaching 8th grade U.S. history, but have experience teaching 6th grade science and social studies, 7th grade Texas history, and 8th grade science. I earned my bachelor's degree in political science and psychology from the University of Texas at Tyler and my master's degree in educational leadership from the University of Texas at Arlington.
I have one daughter, Alexis, who is currently working on her Master's in Business Administration degree at UT Tyler. She is my greatest accomplishment and I enjoy watching her grow throughout her journey.
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I also volunteer with a student travel program, Ambassador Leaders (formerly People to People Student Ambassadors), and have led leadership summits at Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, UCLA, and Stanford. I am truly blessed to have the privilege of meeting and working with students from all over the world.
I am looking forward to another fantastic school year of working with our amazing Curtis staff, students and parents. Please reach out at anytime and let me know how I can be of support.
Go Curtis Cougars!
