Deborah Alba

I grew up attending Plano ISD and graduated from Plano Senior High School.  I attended Texas Women's University, where I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene.  I worked in the Dental Hygiene field for over 15 years.   I then switched to teaching so I could be on the same schedule as my children.  I am starting my 12th year at Williams.  I began n the Special Education Department for 3 years and then had the opportunity to utilize my medical background.  I obtained my Career and Technology Certification in Health Sciences and have been teaching it for the last 8 years.  I also have the Professional Communiation certifications so the Health Science students get credit for that while taking my class.

I had the pleasure of developing the Health Sciences Academy from the ground up and have been teaching the 9th graders since we opened.  I can't believe this is our 8th year! It has been exciting to watch them go through the program and achieve their goals.

 I have lived in Murphy for over 20 years and all three of my children graduated from Plano East Senior High School.  All three are advancing their education, with one working on their masters and the other two on their undergraduate courses.   I enjoy the community I work in and the students I work with.
