Ms. Debbie Hays
Hi! My name is Debbie Hays and I am the PACE Specialist at Beverly Elementary. I have worked in Plano ISD since 1982 when I began teaching third grade at Thomas Elementary. I was lucky enough to move to Beverly as the third grade team leader in 1998 when Beverly opened. After a few years in third grade, I became the PACE Specialist here on campus.
Third grade has always held a special place in my heart. It was after my third grade year in school that I decided I wanted to become a teacher!! I followed that dream to Texas A&M University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I went on to receive my master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University in Special Education with Emphasis on Gifted.
I recently moved into a new home here in Plano with my little Chihuahua dog, Mocha. My two daughters, both PISD graduates, live in Plano with their families. I am the oh-so-proud grandma of four special little boys!
I am so excited to begin a new year here at Beverly! Every year holds special moments and memories of the wonderful Beverly Bobcats I love so much!!
