With an impressive professional history dating back more than four decades, Dr. Stevos has proven herself to be a respected integral educator. She started teaching social studies in 1971 and moved into academic administrative roles within her schools not long after. She served as the supervisor of social studies for the Providence School Department from 1976 to 1990. After, she spent the next two years as the Director of Program and Staff Development with the department. Since 1992, she has served as the Director of Strategic Planning and Professional Development with the department.

Dr. Stevos earned an MEd from the Rhode Island College in 1997 and later received a PhD from the institution in 2005. The highlight of Dr. Stevos’ career was when she became social studies teacher supervisor as she thought that is what she wanted to do and thought she could make so many changes without causing a affect. She would go on to tremendously affect the community; she worked with a community group and did a program that ended up being bigger than the officials who sent her expected and they would get a head line for the whole district because she always went bigger than anybody thought possible. In her career, Dr. Stevos has maintained professional affiliation with the RI Black Heritage Society, Delta Sigma Theta, Social Studies Supervisors Association, the National Conference of Christians and Jews, and Daughters of the American Revolution. In 2019, she received the Charles B. Willard Award from the Rhode Island College Alumni Association. She has also received such accolades as the Living the Dream Award from the Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission, the All Kids Awards from the Urban Collaborative Accelerated Program, and the George T. Downing Award for Education from RI Black Heritage Society among many other awards.
