Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Stephanie Henrikson
I earned my bachelor's degree from DePaul University with an English major and psychology minor. After college I worked in the non-profit field in fundraising, marketing and grant writing. It was during this time that I began coaching and choreographing for high school dance programs, which inspired me to become a teacher. No job surprised, delighted or challenged me like the experience of working with high school students.
After years of dance training in ballet, jazz and contemporary dance, I decided to pursue a career in education and earned my master's degree in Kinesiology and Physical Education with an emphasis on Dance Education. During my career, I have coached and choreographed teams to three Team Dance Illinois State Championships and an IHSA Sectional Championship. I am certified to teach 6th-12th grade dance, physical education, health and English.
