How Education Shaped Debrah Owings Life: "I feel teaching has definitely impacted my life. It has made me who I am. I feel working with students has made me more compassionate and caring. I want to be a positive role model and this helps shape who I am. It has also made me a better mother. I know the struggles which children go through which has helped me with my own children. I also love working with my granddaughter and doing art activities with her. Because of teaching I have also teach Sunday School, have been a Girl Scout Leader and coached Cheerleading. I probably would not of been in these leadership roles if I had not been a teacher."
