My name is Deborah Alford (I prefer to be called Debbie). Yes, you did read correctly, I have been in education for 36 years! I was a classroom teacher for 28 of those years, 5th & 6th grade, and I have been a principal for the last 7 years. I love my job because I love children! My job NEVER gets boring. Each day is a new day filled with excitement. I believe that teaching is the most important and most rewarding profession. I am blessed to work with wonderful children, supportive parents, and excellent teachers.
I moved to Louisburg, two years ago. I have two cats, Bob and Gracie. I made the move to be closer to my daughter, Jennifer and the two "men" in my life, my grandsons, Nathan (almost 10) and Eli (almost 3). My absolute favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family!
So...I am in the profession I always wanted to be in. I work in a wonderful school district. I am the principal in 3 great schools, and I live close to my family. I try to remember how blessed I am, everyday, and I always remind the students that in school, "Every day is a new day".
Have a wonderful year, and feel free to drop by to visit with me anytime!
