Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I'm Deborah Ananson and this coming year will be my 20th year of teaching. Two years ago, I moved from Palm Beach County FL where I lived for 25 years. I was born and raised in northern New Jersey, so the weather here brings back great memories of my childhood. I love the changing seasons! Between the wonderful weather, amazing landscape, and warm, welcoming people, this is a great place to live.
I have two daughters, Kieley, a graduate of UF (go GATORS) who lives outside DC with her husband, daughter who will turn one this September, and their rescue dog. My younger daughter Kate, a graduate of USF, is a barista/coffee master with Starbucks and moved to Seattle four years ago. Since I love coffee, it's wonderful to have an expert, not to mention connection, in the family! I don't like having my daughters far away, but it's nice that they live in such cool places to visit!
When I'm not teaching, I love to skype with my daughters and granddaughter; read, bake, garden, work on remodeling and decorating our house, and being entertained by our two rather large dogs. Both are rescues and give us so much to love and laugh about every day. I also love football and continue to root for the NY Giants, win or lose, as I have since I was a little girl and was introduced to the game by my dad.
I'm looking forward to a great year and the chance to get to know each of you!
