Meet the Teacher...

Welcome to our Courageous Kindergarten class!  My name is Debbie Taylor.  I am in my twenty seventh year of teaching.   I am a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I began my teaching career at an Oklahoma City school by the name of John Adams.  I then had the opportunity to come to Cashion Elementary in the 1999/2000 school year.  This is my twenty second year here at Cashion and I absolutely love teaching here!  Most all of my teaching experience had been with second grade up until the 2003-2004 school year.  Our very first Pre-K program began that year and is now in its eighteenth successful year.   Twelve years ago I left pre-k and began teaching Kindergarten after the retirement of our wonderful Mrs. Nancy Simmons.  I absolutely adore teaching Kindergarten!!

 I am married to a wonderful man named Randy and we have three daughters.  Haleigh (Kunschik) Kenney is a Cashion alumni of 2004 and is now 35, married, and has a son named Carver who will be 6 in January and a beautiful daughter named Hildie who will turn 4 in November.   Whitnee (Kunschik) is also a Cashion alumni of the class of 2007 and is 32.  Last, but not least is Carley who is a Cashion graduate of 2012 and is married, and has our first grand baby Ivy  who will be 7 in September and in 1st grade here in Cashion.  Our grandkids are an absolute joy to our lives! Our family attends the Cashion Baptist Church.  We invite you to join us if you are looking for a church home:)  I am looking forward to a great year with your children!!  Should you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me!  


Mission for the Class

My mission for our Kindergarten class is that each and every child will experience success at some level, whether it be at an academic level, a social level, or ideally at both.  I believe young children are like sponges in that they are capable of learning so much.  I have very high expectations for each and every student.  My goal is to expose them to many learning experiences in a variety of ways.  I feel that every child can learn and I will do my best to facilitate that learning through my educational knowledge, as well as a loving heart. Kindergarten will be some children's first experience at school.  I realize the important role I will have in helping that experience to be a good one.  I thank you for entrusting me with part of your child's education.  As partners, we will work together for the best of your precious children.  You, the parents are your child's best, first teacher:)
