Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to a new and exciting school year at Alice W. Douse Elementary! My name is Stephanie Brooks and I am thrilled to be a part of the Diamondback family serving as a Curriculum Instructional Specialist.
I began my journey in the Killeen Independent School District as a second grader at Clarke Elementary on Ft. Hood. I then moved to Clifton Park Elementary for third through fifth grade. I graduated as a proud C.E. Ellison High School Eagle and went on to graduate from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Early Childhood in 1997. Go Cru! I earned my Master of Education in Administration and Leadership from the University of Texas A&M-Central Texas in December 2009.
I have been an educator with KISD since August 1997. My career began as a first-grade teacher at Hay Branch Elementary. Over the years I have had the pleasure to teach first, second, third, and fifth grade, as well as being a RICA/Dyslexia teacher and a Reading Interventionist. I enjoy teaching children, learning with them as a they figure out a new idea or skill, and seeing the excitement on their faces when they master something that had once been difficult. As I enter my 24th year in education, I look forward to working and building a strong relationship with you this year to ensure your child has a successful elementary school journey.
