Debbie Lester


This is my 23rd year of teaching, and I have been incredibly lucky to have been an Oakhurst Owl for 16 of those years (with an extra year at College Heights)! I have a MEd in Early Childhood Education, and also received my BA degree from College of Charleston. I have taught students in grades K-3, and enjoy the uniqueness of the students in each grade. I am currently an Early Intervention teacher (EIP) and am excited to work with students in all grades this year. I love working and living in the Decatur community (with my husband, 9 year-old daughter, 2 dogs, a cat, and a hamster), and cherish the relationships I have made with families throughout the years. I am thankful to work with such a dedicated group of people who inspire me each and every day to make a difference in the lives of little people.
