Mrs. Neel's Website


My name is Debbie Neel. I am not a Colorado native but I have lived here for 22 years. I have been teaching English at Dakota Ridge High School since 2008. Prior to that I taught eighth grade Language Arts at Summit Ridge Middle School for nine years and fifth grade in Paulding County, Georgia for one year. In between jobs (because of moving), I was a substitute teacher in Cobb County, GA and and in Jeffco. I also taught pre-school and horseback riding for several years when my children were very young. My husband and I are both from North Carolina, and we met while attending East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C. We have three beautiful daughters and four wonderful grandchildren! In my spare time I love to garden, read, cook, hike, travel, and attend concerts. Red Rocks is one of my favorite venues. My favorite place to be is the beach--I grew up near the ocean so I am definitely an ocean girl!
