Mrs. Cheryl Stueve
Hi, I am Cheryl Stueve, the new Junior/Senior counselor at Tesla this year. I am excited to be here and looking forward to getting to know all the students and assist them in their journey through high school and on to what awaits them after. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
I grew up in a small town in Kansas. After graduating high school, I attended college at Missouri Western State College where I earned my Associates degree in Management/Marketing. I was a retail manager for 9 years, where I became more focused on the well-being of the teenage employees than on running stores. I returned to college and obtained my B.S. in Social Psychology; then worked in the mental health field with teens from residential to treatment settings. Recognizing the importance of education in the holistic process, I returned to college again to earn my M.A. in Educational Counseling. I prefer to focus on alternative schools and populations where I thoroughly enjoy the students!
I have one biological son who is now 22 and a “chosen” son, now 23, who joined our family during his high school years. The two boys were very different in their personalities and with their struggles and achievements. They have taught me endless lessons in life that I use everyday with the interactions of my students!
