Stephen McCauley

I am the Jobs for Kentucky’s Graduates and Lifetime Fitness teacher at Paris High School. 

This is my 13th year of teaching and my 8th year at Paris High School. 

I live in Cynthiana with my wife of 11 years Rebecca.  My wife and I welcomed our daughter Elinor Wells McCauley on March 28th of 2012.  They say kids will change your life forever, and I wholeheartedly agree with that!
 
In my free time, I enjoy golfing, playing basketball and soccer and reading books.  I once had a running streak that extended over 1200 consecutive days where I ran at least one mile everyday.  I play guitar and sing in two different bands.  I also dabble in real estate. 

I believe all students can be successful if they want to learn and are not afraid to work hard.
