About Me

  • Hey Zizzers! My name is Stephanie Huddleston. This is my eighth year at West Plains Middle School. For the first three years, I taught Special Education in 6th-8th grade, and I am now entering my fifth year as a school counselor. Prior to West Plains, I taught Special Education at Branson High School. I love being part of the WPMS team and feel blessed to work with students through this transitional stage.

    My husband, Nathan, and I have been married for 16 years. We have two energetic sons, Jackson, 11, and Elim, 9. We spent most of our spring and summer on the ball field or gym. I love cheering on my boys from the sideline. We also enjoy playing card and board games, camping, and swimming. My favorite pastime (some might say obsession) is READING. 

    I am looking forward to a great year. Go ZMS!
