    Welcome to Mrs. DeBusk's second grade class!  I am so excited that we get to spend the whole year learning together.  I previously taught every grade from 1st-7th, took many years off to raise my 5 children, and came back five years ago teaching 1st grade.  While so many things have changed in education during that time, my love for children and helping them to grow, has not!  

    I have been married to Ben for 34 years.  We met in college in San Marcos, TX, and quickly after graduation, he went into the Air Force.  We have 5 children:  Bailey (31), Darby (23), Kally (20), Rainey (17), and Rawley (15).  I love to bake things, read, and try to do things on the computer.

    Bailey and her husband, Charles, have moved up here as Charles accepted a job at McKinney North High School and they, their two dogs, and our two grandsons, Hayes and Jameson!  They now live just down the street from us.  I LOVE having all my children back in the same place again.   But I especially love that I get to see my grandsons just about every day.  They call me Pip!

    Darby works fulltime as a social media manager at Chase Oaks Church and has just moved into her first apartment!

    Kally graduated from Allen High School in 2020 and is pursuing her nursing degree at Collin College. 

    Rainey is a senior at the high school, and Rawley is entering 10th grade there also.

    Ben is a pastor and we enjoy our free time together.  Before COVID, he would bring lunch to me each Friday. I am hoping that tradition can begin again, and we have weekly Saturday date days (We call them Saturdates)!  We think he looks like he could be related to Paul Hollywood, a judge on the Great British Bake Off, which is one of our favorite shows to watch!  

    We have had many adventures in our married life including living in Italy for 2 1/2 years.  But where we are now, and what we are doing now, is our greatest adventure to date!
