Debra Manley

Hello. My name is Debra Manley.

I live in Corning, with my husband, Jim. We have two children, John and Sara, who are busily establishing careers of their own. We share our house with four cats, Boo, Zelda,Big Fluffy and Biscuit. I love flowers and surround my house with them. I am a big fan of reading! Each day I find time to admire the beauty that surrounds us, the beauty that God created. Philippians 4:4 is one of my favorite bible verses: “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice!”

I have been teaching kindergarten since 2007, and previously, worked in the pre- kindergarten program at HCS for six years. I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in Literacy, both from Elmira College. I am certified in Elementary Education and Early Elementary Education. I hold my licenses through NYS.
