My name is Deborah Alford (I prefer to be called Debbie). Yes, you did read correctly, I have been in education for 42 years! I was a classroom teacher for 29 of those years, 5th & 6th grade, and I have been a principal for the last 13 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, five years ago. I have two cats, Bob and Gracie. I made the move to be closer to my family and my church. I have four grandchildren: Emma, 17, Conner, 16, Nathan, 14, and Eli, 7. They are, without a doubt, the best things in my life! My absolute favorite things to do are: watch Hallmark movies, watch the boys 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 kids. 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!
