Mrs. Coni Steverding, Dean of Students/Learning Facilitator

As I am entering my 29th year in education, I continue to be grateful for the opportunity to be the Dean of Students for Perry Elementary.  I have worked at Perry Local Schools for the last 19 years.  I first taught 9th and 12th grade English at the high school for two years and then spent 13 years working as a Learning Facilitator which is a K-12 position centered on curriculum, instruction and assessment.  In addition, I lead our New Teacher Induction and Resident Education Programs, served as an adjunct professor for Ashland University teaching educator courses to our staff and assisted in the professional development of many of our district initiatives.  Within this position, I was able to work with teacher in all subjects, at all grade levels.  When working with the teachers at PES, I have been impressed with their strong commitment to the needs of our students and their constant pursuit of learning.  I am fortunate to continue to work with these teachers as we get better every day for our students.

It is our goal at PES to ensure a safe environment for all of our students in which they are respectful, responsible and ready to learn so that we can be strong Perry PEEPS.  One tool we utilize to achieve this goal is the R factor.  We are excited about our work with this tool in which students use the powerful equation: (Event) + R (Response) = O (Outcome).  Students will learn through school-wide assemblies, teacher and principal led lessons, our school chant, and daily reminders that our “on-path” responses to the events in our life, both good and bad, will lead us to our “treasures” (learning, kindness, success, friendship) and not sink our ship.  I look forward to working with our PES students on this journey!
