My name is Deborah Sterling, I am the divorced mother of two adults and the grandmother of six. My beautiful family is my greatest accomplishment and there is nothing I enjoy more than spending quality time with them. Although, I never intended to become a teacher I guess it was fate. After being an instructional aide and a substitute in the Walnut Valley School District, I switched to Rowland USD. I returned to school to earn my Special Education Teaching Credential and was hired at Giano Middle School. I believe in teaching and nurturing the "whole" child not just the academic side. Although, it can be difficult at times I cannot think of another profession that I would enjoy more than what I am doing now!
