​Paula Stewart has had many different roles as a professional educator. She began her career in early childhood education when her own children were young, then returned to college to become a school counselor, a position she has held in elementary and middle schools in Peterborough, New Ipswich, and Concord New Hampshire. Ms. Stewart is passionate about helping students recognize and build on their strengths in order to be successful in school and in life.

Ms. Stewart has taught undergraduate and graduate level courses in school counseling and adolescent psychology at both Keene State College and Southern New Hampshire University. She loves to witness future educators find the joy in teaching and sharing the school experience with young people. In addition, she spent about ten years as an EMT in Peterborough, getting out of bed in the middle of the night to hop in the ambulance. She misses the adrenaline rush of the job but not the hours.

When not working, Ms. Stewart can be found spending time with her growing family. She has three adult children, a teenage step-daughter, three adorable grandsons, and a rescue mutt named Scout. Her oldest daughter, Kelsey is married and has three boys ages 10, 3, and almost 1. They live in Northern New Hampshire with their goats and chickens and are the perfect excuse to take a ride through the White Mountains on the weekends. Mary Kate and her boyfriend are in the process of relocating from NH to South Carolina to take on some new adventures. Jimmy is a student at Plymouth State College studying criminal justice, and Madison is in high school and just started her first part-time job. Ms. Stewart loves to cook, read for hours, listen to live music (especially country music), garden, and do almost anything that will take her outdoors.
