My name is Debra Tate, and I have been teaching for twenty-two years. I grew up in Louisiana and attend college at the University of Southwestern Louisiana where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. I moved to Texas in 2010 and this is my eighth year teaching at Barbara Jordan Elementary. Having the opportunity to have taught in three different states has greatly impacted my educational career in many positive ways. I have had the opportunity to teach many wonderful students with different socioeconomic backgrounds. Some teachers are meant to teach. I feel that desire everyday I step into my classroom.
I am also a mother of three wonderful boys who keep me busy. They are my heart and soul. My dual role as mom and teacher gives me a special insight into where students are coming from and where they are headed.
I am excited to have another wonderful year teaching at Barbara Jordan Elemetary.
