Samantha Stelzl


Hello, my name is Sammi Stelzl and I am an English and Social Studies teacher at SMCHS. I currently teach Transitional English, Creative Writing, Greek and Roman Mythology, Ancient Civilizations, Contemporary Literature and World Literature. I have been teaching at SMCHS since 2016 and have greatly enjoyed my experience being a part of this amazing community!

I grew up in Appleton, WI having graduated from Appleton North High School. I attended the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay where I majored in English and minored in Education. I was extremely involved on campus, being a Student Ambassador and member of Sigma Tau Delta (English Honor Society), the National Residence Hall Honorary, and the Residence Hall and Apartment Association. I also had the opportunity to attend state, national and international conferences as a member of the Regional Board of Directors for the Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. After being involved in so many different organizations, I had the honor of being one of eight in my graduating class to be awarded the Chancellor’s Leadership Medallion for my contributions to UW – Green Bay’s campus.

I absolutely love traveling and was able to student teach for nine weeks at La Escuela de Marymount in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. It was my first experience in a private school, and an extremely educational opportunity. I have also traveled to England, France and most recently to Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein and Switzerland with the SMCHS German students. I am incredibly thankful for all the different opportunities for both students and myself at SMCHS!

In my spare time I try to spend time with family and my three dogs. Stop in my room anytime to see pictures! I also love watching Packer games, seeing movies, reading, writing, and enjoying theater performances at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. I look forward to another wonderful year at this school and working with the students!
