Former Webb City principal, JHS graduate profiled in Monett Times article

Stephanie Heman, a Webb City High School assistant principal for the past nine years, is profiled in a Monett Times article about her new job as assistant principal at Monett High School.

Heman, a Joplin High School graduate under her maiden name Bellm, tells the Times she moved to Monett because she and her husband both have relatives in the area. She offered the following observations on hew new school district:

Heman has had a positive impression of the Monett district in her opening weeks here. Seeing two of her past students on the faculty, Michael Calhoun and Kristy Sivils, pleased her to have contributed to the district’s success. The opening rally last week, with its games and humorous exchanges, was a pleasant surprise.

"It's nice to watching everybody have fun with what they're doing, to realize there's a time to step back and have fun, to get people excited about the new year," Heman said. "I feel our goal as administrators is to keep students and staff centered on what it is to be a lifelong learner.

"I can see this is a very good school district in a very supportive community. I think this is a high school that has a great staff who are committed to teach our students, and the programs that we offer here only demonstrate how progressive and proactive the Monett school district is. To be part of that is very refreshing.”
