The Back Story of Teaching with a vision

Thanks for visiting my sliver of the web! Let me fill you in on the person behind Teaching with a Vision.

My name is Debbi, and I have been an educator for the past 23 years. I began by teaching  Kindergarten for one year. I then taught 5th grade for six years, and finally 3rd grade for another six years. I must say that my favorite grade by far was 3rd grade! They are old enough to be independent, but young enough to think that you are the best thing since sliced bread!

Currently, I am...

I am currently the ELA Curriculum Coordinator and Induction Coach for my district. I have loved teaching from the moment I entered the classroom. I am now able to touch the lives of more students and teachers as I travel to five different schools and coach around twenty teachers each year. Additionally, I achieved National Board Certification in the area of Elementary Education.t
