Bio

My name is Debra M. I am a retired Middle School Teacher and I really miss my students. I miss the energy of the classroom and the students. I remember the students with all of their emotional issues and always felt like the academics I was teaching had to be done with much understanding. I looked forward to seeing my students every day, even though some of those days were harder than others. I always felt proud to be there caring for the most precious thing their parents could have...

My name is Debra M. I am a retired Middle School Teacher and I really miss my students. I miss the energy of the classroom and the students. I remember the students with all of their emotional issues and always felt like the academics I was teaching had to be done with much understanding. I looked forward to seeing my students every day, even though some of those days were harder than others. I always felt proud to be there caring for the most precious thing their parents could have entrusted to me. All of my students didn't like me. I had some students that I struggled to like, but I was there to teach them all, and I did my best to do that. Sometimes academics seemed to take second place, depending on what was going on in the life of the student. I tried to be sensitive to that. I did my best to meet the student where they were ability wise and bring them on from there. I still believe that is the best way to teach.

I am the mother of 8 children, twelve grand children and four great grand children. I am married to a very wonderful man and we have been together for 52 years. I love music, I play the flute, but I enjoy everything from country to opera music. I like to knit , sew and garden. I have the most wonderful best friends in my two dogs, one a very silly and hyper puppy named Shadow; and one a ten year old Chiweenie named Pippin. My dogs are really important to my daily happiness. Family is first, but those doggies are the best. I couldn't do without them.

I love to teach, to help students learn to do something that is important and necessary. I really love working with students who think they can't do something and show them they absolutely can. I used to carry a tote bag that said, "Teaching is My Bag". Teaching made me feel happy and necessary and that I had real purpose in this world. I will always remember my 22 years of teaching experience. My favorite grade level to teach were the sixth graders. They were so eager to learn and let me help them. They were a real gift to
