About Ms. Deb Mitchell...
Position: English Instructor
Team/Department: Honors 10 & English 12
This is my 11th year at CHS and my (gulp!) 38th year in education. I've taught every grade from 7th to community college, and, yes. I'm old. BUT I still love teaching, and I'm still enthusiastic about reading and writing and all things English. I love it best when we all feel safe and comfortable sharing our ideas and thoughts, so I like to keep a friendly, positive atmosphere where everyone feels welcome and free to be the wonderful, unique individuals they are.
Parents and students, if you're ever concerned or confused, don't hesitate to reach out. I LOVE communication and resolving issues quickly. I know my exterior can be intimidating at times, but inside I'm a MOM and a softie, and I always seek to understand and empathize when I can.
It's been a long couple of years, and I look forward to some measure of "normalcy" if we can get it in 2022-23. I think it's going to be a fabulous year!
