Welcome to Collierville High School Resource Class!

My name is Samantha Styfhoorn and I am in my 15th year of teaching Special Education at Collierville High School. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Law Enforcement, a Masters Degree in Recreation Park and Tourism Administration at Western Illinois University and a Masters Degree in Teaching from University of Memphis.

I am looking forward to working with your student as we emerge into a new and exciting year of challenging classes. They will be learning all the necessary academic, social and vocational skills that will assist in their independence and transition into the workplace or post school training.

I have three para-professionals who assist in my class. They can be reached at :

If I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at
