Hello, my name is Debbie Krabbe and this will be my seventh year as a Special Education teacher at Mount View High School. I truly love teaching at Mount View and have certainly found a home in this school and in McDowell County.
I am originally from Lexington, Kentucky (GO WILDCATS!) but lived in many states and in Germany while my husband was in the Army. After graduation I attended Eastern Kentucky University and UK; later attending Western Kentucky University and finally graduating from Bluefield State. I received my Masters from Marshall University in the Art of Teaching Special Education in 2015. My teaching certification is in Multi-Categorical Special Education with content specializations in all core areas. This year I am very excited to be teaching Math and Science.
Although I do teach Special Education, I am also very involved in helping students who need to take credit recovery and I am a tutor during advisory. If you feel your student needs tutoring, please let me know. This summer I also worked on a book for seniors that gives them an insight into available scholarships. Let me know how I can help. Additionally, I worked to develop a school Face Book page, Instagram and Twitter moving Mount View in sync with this technically global world. The finalized information for that is forthcoming soon.
This summer (2017) I attended the Model Schools Conference where I gained a great deal of knowledge about ideas and programs that can help change the scope and future of Mount View High School. My goal of this school year is to build on this focus and work to bring Mount View into the communities and the communities into Mount View. Together we are stronger and in this strength we will grow.
Our school-wide program remains Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) and I am committed to its success. This is a tiered program that promotes student success in behavior, academics, and their personal life. PBIS is a great program with incentives that are based on ARMOR tickets where students can earn prizes for any yellow ARMOR tickets they are awarded. There are also quarterly incentives in which students can earn participation in activities such as games, music, movies and such. Our PBIS program is based on the following:
- A - Accountable
- R - Respectful
- O - Organized
- R - Ready
Students who develop behavior, academic, and social goals under the PBIS framework are doing more than just adhering to school rules, they are developing positive skills for future success.
- Hands-on project-based learning. (Projects that will benefit the student's learning but also be a source of community involvement.)
- A "paperless" classroom; this will allow students to have a digital record of all assignments.
- To increase student understanding of Math and Science as it relates to the real world.
- We will be in your communities; so look for us!
- Open House is August 15th from 3 - 6 p.m.
- The first day of school is August 17th: so excited to see you all!
- We will have a few new classroom pets!
