Degrees and Certifications:

Debbie Lester


This is my 26th year of teaching, and I am entering my 20thh year at Oakhurst (with an extra year at College Heights)! I have a MEd in Early Childhood Education, and also received my BA degree from College of Charleston. I have taught students in grades K-3, and enjoy the uniqueness of the students in each grade. I am currently an Early Intervention teacher (EIP) and am excited to work with students in all grades this year.

I love working and living in the Decatur community (with my husband, 12 year-old daughter, 2 dogs (Rocky and Dexter), and a cat (Popcorn), and cherish the relationships I have made with families throughout the years. I am thankful to work with such a dedicated group of people who inspire me each and every day to make a difference in the lives of little people.
