Returning to the U.S.A., she lived in Nashville as a church planter before moving to Houston. She has been teaching Elementary Music with the Katy I.S.D. for the past 16 years. Debra is vocal coach for our junior musical theater productions.



“In trying to find God’s purpose for my life, I am always led to the teaching profession. For me, it presents the best way to SERVE others by preparing children for their future!”
