Mrs. Debbie Sarty

Hello, my name is Debbie Sarty and I have been teaching for 12 years. Prior to becoming a classroom teacher I served as a Para in Special Education for 5 years. My husband is retired from the Air Force but while he was still active duty we lived in Missouri and North Dakota where we raised our three children. After his retirement we found our way to Colorado Springs and have lived here since 2001. I returned to school and completed my BA in Elementary Education from Colorado Christian University. I then went on to get my MA in Curriculum and Instruction from the same university.  I have been teaching in the classroom for twelve years but before that I served as a Para in Special Education for five years. During my time as a Para I had the opportunity to work with many amazing educators and have used their expertise along with my education experiences to become the teacher I am today.

I work hard to give all my students a positive experience and strive to develop relationships so that I can meet their needs in the classroom. I feel that the relationship between the teacher and the student has to be in place and strong before learning can take place. I also strive to work alongside the families so that we can develop a strong team to support the child. My goal is to provide educational opportunities to guide children's growth!
