Debra Hedin

Kindergarten, Full Day

Hello, my name is Debbie Hedin. I am thrilled to be a Kindergarten teacher at Canyon Rim Academy. I have taught Kindergarten here for 6 years. I have so appreciated working with the staff, students and families of this school community. There is a great feeling of cooperation and togetherness here.

I have been teaching for 13 years. After I raised my family I went back to school and finished my bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2010, then finished a master's degree in the same field in 2011. I taught Kindergarten for 6 years and Second Grade for 2 years in Granite School District. I have also earned an ESL endorsement, and have completed a 2 year literacy program entitled LETRS, (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling).

I am married and have 5 children, 3 daughters-in-law, and 4 grandchildren. I enjoy reading, camping, hiking, doing puzzles, and family history. I love learning and teaching and my goal is that each student leaves my classroom loving school.
