Hello! My name is Debbie Hartman and this is my 7th year at Reagan and 7th year in Grand Prairie ISD. Before coming to Reagan, I was a high school counselor for several years in Fort Worth, Katy, South Texas and even a year in the Bush of Alaska in Scammon Bay (ask me about tasting whale). Before becoming a counselor, I helped with the growth of the AVID program in Fort Worth ISD. Helping students become College and Career Ready has always been very important to me. But my passion is students. I truly believe education is a calling. I cannot remember a time where I did not want to be a teacher/counselor.
I am a mom to 4 of the most amazing adults. Three girls and a son. My oldest daughter teaches 7th grade Texas History and AVID! (yes, I am one proud momma) But my pride and joy are my granddaughters. One is a 6th grader and the other is 5 going into kindergarten!
I absolutely love being a part of the Reagan Knight family. We have a very strong staff who genuinely care about the future of our students. Please do not hesitate to call, drop by or email me with any concerns. My door is always open!

A little bit about me...I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee and the proud mother of an incandescent, smart, witty, and beautiful teenage daughter who keeps me on my toes! She is the love of my life and I'm so thankful that God blessed me with her! On my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, traveling, bike riding, and reading.
