Introducing our Counseling Staff
Greetings.  I'm Amy Rinken, the SHS Counseling Office Admin. Asst.  I have worked in the offices at Stewartville High School for 24 years.  My husband and I love Stewartville, and we are active in our community.  I have an adult son, daughter who is a senior at SHS, and one gorgeous, fluffy calico cat named Sami.  I graduated from Winona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in 1993.  Stop by or give me a call (or email) any time!  507.533.1616 or amy.rinken@ssdtigers.org. ;


Hello, my name is Pam Iverson.  I am the school counselor for students whose last names start with the letters A-L.  I can best be reached through email at pamela.iverson@ssdtigers.org. ; I am in my 21st year as a school counselor, and my 13th year at Stewartville High School.  I moved to Minnesota from South Dakota with my husband, Brad, 18 years ago.  We have 2 spoiled cats, Buddy and Patch.  I earned a Bachelor of Art Degree in English Education and Behavioral Science from Mount Marty College.  I then earned a Master's Degree from the University of South Dakota, and a Doctorate Degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato.  I believe learning is a lifelong journey.  I am happy to work at SHS, and I truly feel blessed to help and serve students each day.
