Class V Teacher BS, University of Utah

Debbie has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah.  She later received her gifted endorsement to gain extra skills to help  all students achieve their personal best. For the past several years she  has been teaching the 4th grade gifted class in the Granite District. She  believes that the concepts taught in the gifted classes can be used to  enhance the education for all students. She loves the energy and  enthusiasm that children have as they learn something new!  She loves living by the mountains where we have easy access to skiing.  Skiing as a family became her favorite winter activity. She also loves  most sports including biking, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and  swimming. Her favorite summer activity is teaching her grandchildren  to swim. She enjoys the family vacation to Laguna Beach each summer  where the family is able to put those swimming skills to good use! She  loves to see all children accomplish hard things! Besides her children  and grandchildren, she has two dogs. Her two dogs, Marco and Polo  keep her busy in her after school hours!
