Wimberley Texan Culture - Stephanie Barthels, Wimberley HS
I am in my 18th year in public school and have been coaching for 21 total years total. I started at Wharton County Junior College right out of high school. Harold Shilk took a chance on me and I was his assistant for two years and then transferred to TLU and coached at Lifegate Christian School my junior year while at TLU. After graduation I took a job in Marion ISD and was a middle school coach for one year, then the following year I moved to the varsity volleyball coach position and stayed there for three years. I then transitioned to Canyon Lake HS for the next three as an assistant. I have since been at Wimberley where I was an assistant for seven years and I have been the head coach for four. I'm married to John Barthels, who is a football coach and head track coach at Canyon Lake and the mother of a high energy, soon to be six year old girl, Judith.
