My name is Debra Sprouse and I am a Kindergarten teacher here at HKC. I was born in Iowa, moved to New Hamphire for a short time, and eventually moved onto Long Island in New York where we stayed and I grew up. I moved to Staunton in 1996 and have lived here ever since.I currently live with my two daughters,and our guinea pig Fiona,in the Staunton/Fishersville area.
I attended Virginia Wesleyan University in Norfolk, VA where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Education. I am certified to teach Preschool through 8th grade. This is my 23rd year teaching for Augusta County Public Schools. I taught at Craigsville Elementary for 9 years. The rest of my teaching career has been spent right here at HKC Elementary where I am so proud to be a Cassell Knight!!
Here is a fun fact about me: If I hadn't chosen to be a teacher I would have chosen to be an archaeologist!
