Mrs. Tracie Steward:
Many students have called Mrs. Tracie Steward, "teacher," over the years. That is because she has called kindergarten home with the Bluford School District for the last 30 years. Prior to joining the Bluford School District, Mrs. Steward taught fifth grade for two years in Carbondale.
Mrs. Steward loves seeing families continue to come through the school each year. She also enjoys having children of former students! She also loves watching students outside of school at various activities. In addition to that, the annual school carnival is one of her favorite activities to attend.
There have been many moments throughout her career which are memorable, but taking junior high students to Washington D.C. and visiting the White House really stand out. Also, each year as Kindergarten students begin to read on their own is a great memory.
Outside of school, Mrs. Steward enjoys reading, boating, and spending time with her own children. She loves sports and traveling to other campuses to watch her son, Cole, play football for the SIUC Salukis! It is a goal of Mrs. Steward's to see the Statue of Liberty and go to the Kentucky Derby, complete with the fancy hat!
