    Welcome to Mrs. DeBusk's third 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 four 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 33 years.  We met in college in San Marcos, TX, and quickly after graduation, he went into the Air Force.  We have 5 children:  Bailey (30), Darby (22), Kally (19), Rainey (17), and Rawley (14).  I love to bake things, read, and try to 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 THEIR NEW BABY BOY, HAYES,  now live withjust 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 grandson just about every day.  He calls me Pip!

    Darby graduated from UNT in May with her degree in Communications with an emphasis in PR and Marketing.

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

    Rainey is a junior at the high school, and Rawley is entering 9th grade at Lowery Freshman Center.

    Ben is a pastor in Plano and we enjoy our free time together.  He brings lunch to me each Friday (though not sure if that will work this year), and we have weekly Saturday date days!  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!
