About debraboeve

I am a wife and mother of two boys, ages six and three. I love my job as an Assistant Principal in Southern California. I am currently in a Doctoral program in Educational Leadership. These life pursuits occupy my time, and some days I wish there were more hours in the day. It is important for me to be a life long learner and to be an exemplary role model for my boys. Thus given the time I am not at work or using my time to complete course work, I try my best to afford my family the quality time they deserve. It's all about finding balance while being a life long learner.

  1. What a fantastic resource, Debra. Thank you for posting.


  2. As teachers, our natural instinct is to keep kids away from what can hurt them. This approach gives students more responsibility and autonomy. Thanks for the info.
