Mrs. Debbie Watkins


Sip, Sip, Horray! I am thrilled to be joining the 3rd grade team this year!  I am originally from Virginia and have lived in NC for over 20 years! My husband, Chris, and I have three children, Lilly (15), Emmy (13) and Harris (11).  Lilly is a Trojan at NW High School and both Emmy and Harris are NW Middle School Titans!

After graduating from Virginia Tech with a BS in Family and Child Development and Early Childhood Education, I taught both Kindergarten and 4th grade before stepping out of the classroom.  During this time, I stayed involved in early childhood education as a Senior Program Director with the Y and as a substitute and interim teacher.  Most recently, I have enjoyed teaching 2nd grade here at Boger! I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at Queen's University.


I can't wait to see our "Zestful" minds SHINE BRIGHT this year! 


Let's squeeze the day!
