Claudia Stephens

Welcome to Palmer Middle School!

My name is Claudia Stephens, and I am so excited to be a member of the fantastic staff of Palmer Middle School! I am a graduate of Eldorado High School in Eldorado, Texas and received my college diploma from Southern Methodist University. I have a Master of Science in Physical Education degree from East Texas State University, a Master of Science in Social Work From the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Master of Education in School Counseling from Texas A&M University Commerce.

I taught Government, World History and American History, and coached girl's basketball for seven years before becoming a School Counselor. I love working with Middle School Students, since it is one of the most exciting and stressful times in our lives.  My goal is to help students, parents and teachers navigate the path to academic success and personal growth.
