Debra Schwartz
1st Grade

I graduated from Concordia University in Seward, NE with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I was blessed to teach for two years in Shenzhen, China and am looking forward to beginning my fourth year of teaching here at Immanuel.

I am very passionate about serving others in my classroom, through music and by volunteering. I love using music and games whenever possible in the classroom, and making learning joyful for my students. My favorite verse is Ephesians 2:8-9, which helps me keep a clear picture of God's grace and the joy that comes from it.

My interests include traveling, playing music, reading, and cooking. I enjoy spending time with my husband, Andrew and children, Jemma and Elijah.
