Debra Armstrong (Asst. Kindergarten Teacher, morning Pre-Kindergarten Teacher)
Miss Debbie is a highly experienced and qualified teacher who has been with our schoool since we opened thirty-seven years ago. She taught our Kindergarten class for twenty-eight years. We have been very fortunate to have her. She is a fantastic reflection and example of what we as a school have tried to provide for our kids and parents. Through the years we have had many former students enroll their own children in our program who remembered the acceptance and warmth of Miss Debbie.
