My name is Deborah L. Dial and I have been teaching for 35 years . Eight of those years were in South Carolina and I taught first grade. I did my undergraduate work at UNC- Pembroke and I received my Masters from the University of South Carolina. I received my National Board in Nov. 2001. Teaching has been a passion I had since I was very young. I knew I wanted to be a teacher because I enjoyed working with young children during middle school through school and church activities. Not only am I a teacher, I am a mother. I have a wonderful family that I enjoy spending time with whenever I get the opportunity. Family is an important priority for us. I have 2 daughters, one is attending Wake Tech. with plans to transfer to UNC-Chapel Hill after receiving an associate degree in science. My oldest daughter is working in Morrisville as a medical sales rep. I enjoy shopping, cooking, power walking and of course teaching school. I look forward to meeting all my new friends this year and we will have many adventures through learning about each other, reading some super duper books and writing many great stories. Let's great ready to learn and have a PAWSOME YEAR with our great KINDERGARTEN TEAM!!!!!!
