We’re delighted to welcome Debbie Reynolds (a.k.a. Admiral Northgate) to our ranks as our newest Flight Director. Debbie will command the helm of the IKS Highlander in Baldwin-Whitehall School District. She will be taking over for Admiral Huckleberry (Mike Kaleta).
Debbie is a Texan that ended up in Pittsburgh almost 10 years ago via Chicago, Philly, Minneapolis, and Jacksonville first. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1986 with a degree in Biology and a double minor in Life/Earth Science and Forestry. She has been teaching since 1986 with the exception of time during her job relocations. Debbie and her husband Mike have been married for 27 years and they have three children, Matt-25, Bobby-24 and Kelly-21.
Debbie is starting her 9th year in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District and just finished her first year as a 7th and 8th grade science teacher at Harrison Middle School. Previously, she was the Gifted Coordinator at Baldwin High School. Debbie is very passionate about STEM and recently completed her Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a STEM emphasis. She currently serves on the district’s STEM Leadership team, and she is super excited to be working with the IKS Highlander and integrating the program into all areas of her curriculum.
We’re super excited to have her aboard, and we can’t wait to hear how her missions with the Highlander go. Welcome aboard, Debbie!
