Welcome to the Terry Redlin Elementary school counseling page. My name is Stephanie Slaba and this is my first year at Terry Redlin Elementary. Prior to coming to Terry Redlin I have enjoyed the role of both a K-12 counselor and K-5 counselor for the past 10 years.
For those of you that I haven't had the opportunity to meet, I will share a little about myself. I grew up in Brookings, but my family moved to Sioux Falls where I attended High School, graduating from Roosevelt High School in 1997. After receiving my undergraduate degree I worked at Volunteers of America, Dakotas working with 11-17 year olds in a chemical dependency treatment program for 3 years. I went onto Avera Mckennan Behavioral Health for 4 years working with all ages. I have worked with Volunteers of America, Dakotas Youth Link Program as a Youth Link Teacher at Patrick Henry Middle School in Sioux Falls.
I received my BS degree from South Dakota State University in 2001 and my MS in Counseling and Human Resource Development from South Dakota State University in 2008. I am both a state and national certified counselor.
I have been married to my husband Bruce for 13 years. We have an 11 year old daughter Delanie, a 8 year old son Raleigh, and dog named Milo.
