Debra Smith has been teaching computer technology for the past 19 years with the last four at Gracemont High School. She has her masters degree, is a Master Trainer and also serves as the technology coordinator and Chair of the Technology Committee for the district. Debra believes it is important to challenge her students and encourage them to exceed beyond their expectations. Her Botball Robotics team competed in regionals and earned the opportunity to attend GCER and the International Botball Tournament in Los Angeles last summer taking home three awards. When not teaching she enjoys visiting with her son, Logan, currently serving in the Navy and her daughter, Katelyn, who is expecting Debra’s first grandchild in August.
