• Welcome to Language Arts !
    I am Mrs. Debbie Hawkins, and I am looking forward to working with all the students and parents on this Investigator team this year!
    Now, a little bit about myself.  I was born and raised in Waynesboro, Virginia, so I am a native to this area.  I graduated from James Madison University with a double major in elementary and middle school education.  I have taught just about every grade from kindergarten to seventh grade, so I guess I continue to be young at heart.
    I am married and have two children.  Whitney, my daughter, graduated from the University of Virginia.  She was working in the admission office at the University of Virginia, but recently took a job as an admission director at Ohio State University.  She is also finishing up her Master's Degree at Ohio State University. My son, Ross, graduated from James Madison University and is presently teaching sixth grade history at a middle school in Amherst County.  My husband, Rick, works at MIKRO, Inc. in Charlottesville, where he is a mechanical engineer and a quality control supervsior. 
    I LOVE FOOTBALL!!!!  I am a die-hard Washington Redskins, James Madison University Dukes, and University of Virginia Cavaliers fan.  Look out you Virginia Tech fans, when you play UVA in football this year!!  I also really LOVE soccer!!!
    Being at a beach, any beach, is what makes my life wonderful!  I especially like being at the Outer Banks in North Carolina or in Key West, Florida.  You can find me in the summer at a beach reading lots of books!
    Now that you know me, feel free to come by and talk to me, so that I can get to know you better!
