Hello! My name is Stephanie Gootee and I am extremely excited to be working as the Marion County Gifted and Talented Resource Teacher for the third year in a row.  I currently service all of the Marion County Elementary Schools one day per week. (See the Important Information page for my schedule.)  I work with the Gifted and Talented students in the 4th and 5th grades as well as the Primary Talent Pool students in grades K-3. 

I currently hold an Associate of the Arts from St. Catharine College, Bachelors in Elementary Education from Spalding University, a Masters of Education and a Rank I from Campbellsville University.  I am certified in Elementary Education, English as a Second Language, and Gifted and Talented.  

This is my third year as a Gifted and Talented Elementary teacher.  I previously taught a 3/4 split class at in Washington County at Fredericktown Elementary before the school closed.  This is my fifth year employed with Marion County.  I served one year as a substitute teacher and two years as an instructional assistant at Lebanon Elementary School where I worked with Kindergarten and the Literacy program.

I currently reside in Raywick although I lived in Loretto for a few years as a child.  My father was originally from Gravel Switch and one of my siblings resides in Calvary.  Therefore, I am very familiar with most areas in our county.  I am married and have two children, a toddler and a first grader.  We have a few acres of our own and take pride in our dedication to our family, friends, and work.
