Mrs. Debby Price

Welcome to Third Grade and Mrs. Price's Class! We are going to have a great year learning and being a part of the Wilson Wrangler family. Wilson Wranglers know how to:

  • Be Respecful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be a Problem-solvers

My name is Debby Price and I have been teaching at Wilson K-8 in several capacities for over 12 years. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your child as I consider teaching and working with children a privilege. A little about me personally.....My family has lived in Tucson since 2004 and we love it! My husband and I are outdoor enthusiasts....love to cycle, hike, and run in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. We have two adult sons that occasionally will cycle, hike, and run with us!

Defining Moment in Education:

After teaching at Wilson K-8 for eight years in 5th grade, I took a "break" and decided to take some time off. My "break" only lasted for two months as I ended up volunteering to teach reading in a third grade class every morning. I just couldn't stay away from the kiddos! By December of that school year, I was rehired to teach a hybrid group of kids---4th grade reading & math and 2nd grade writing. It was a dream job as my position was created by our principal to help alleviate class sizes and provide focused instruction for struggling students that year. It was also an example of how Amphitheather School District tries to use resources to meet an ever-changing student population. That  year of "time off" and "multi-grade" teaching was my defining moment because it was when I realized that teaching just wasn't my job, rather, teaching is my passion.

Core Educational Belief:

My passion is to teach children how to be the best version of themselves and to provide a learning environment where they can learn how to be responsible, life-long learners. At the core, I must strive to do the following:

  • Provide a safe, happy and orderly learning environment for students
  • Engage students in rigorous and relevant instruction
  • Work to ensure that every child succeeds
  • Place priority on the educational needs of students
  • Motivate students to learn
  • Recognize the unique learning styles of each student
  • Facilitate learning by encouraging, prompting, and interacting with students
  • Establish and maintain positive and appropriate relationships with students
  • Ensure learning by providing instruction that meets each student’s individual needs
  • Encourage students to make choices that provide challenges
  • Assess student progress through both formal and informal methods and then provide appropriate and targeted data-driven instruction
