Hello from Kindergarten!
I am Debbie Hill. My dad was an aerospace engineer and worked as a troubleshooter for the Apollo missions. Needless to say, we went wherever he was needed so we moved around a lot. I can understand and empathize when the families of my students move or come to Abilene in the middle of a school year. My favorite place to live was St. Paul, Minnesota. I love the wintry weather.
How did I get here? Well, I went to Hardin Simmons University and married my husband after college. We knew each other for 6 months and got married and… I stayed. Mark is a wonderful, patient man who teaches resource at Abilene High School. We have been married 34 years and he is still my knight in shining honor! We have 4 children. My oldest is 33 years old and my youngest is 16. I can say I never knew how much God wanted me to learn as I raised my children and I am honored and blessed to be their mother!
I should have known I was going into teaching in elementary when I took home every extra paper the teacher was giving out. I played school in the basement and created students that were sometimes very naughty. I stayed home with my older children and got my teaching certificate after my third son was born.
Teaching has been an amazing experience and I learn so much each year. This is my 21st year of teaching. God has placed me at Dyess to help kindergartners become great leaders, compassionate friends and a cheerleader of everyone!
2, 4, 6, 8 Who do we appreciate? Everybody!
