My name is Deborah Alford (I prefer to be called Debbie). Yes, you did read correctly, I have been in education for 39 years! I was a classroom teacher for 29 of those years, 5th & 6th grade, and I have been a principal for the last 10 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, three years ago. I have three cats, Bob, Gracie, and Hazel. I made the move to be closer to my family and my church. The two "men" in my life, are my grandsons, Nathan, 11, and Eli, 4. My absolute favorite things to do are: watch Hallmark movies, watch Nathan play sports, and spending time “trying” to relax!
So...I am in the profession I always wanted to be in. I work in a wonderful school district. I am the principal in 2 great schools, and I live close to my church and my boys. I try to remember how blessed I am, everyday, and I always remind the students that in school, "Every day is a new day".
Feel free to drop by to visit with me anytime! Always call whenever you have a concern. Together, we can work anything out!
