Courses Taught:




Hi! My name is Debbie Jo LaViner. I presently hold a BS in Elementary Education K-6th and a Master's Degree in Elementary K-6th Education. I graduated from Troy University December of 2007 with my BS, and Troy University again in 2010 with my Master's. I am certified as a Highly Qualified Teacher. I attended High School in Dawson, Georgia and graduated from Terrell High School. 


Let me tell you about my experience with children. I have always loved and enjoyed working with kids! in the 80's I was an avid Brownie Scout leader, I open my very own day care (Little Tykes) in Dawson, Georgia. Later, we moved to Huntsville, AL where I went to work at Primrose Schools located on Bailey Cove Road. While there I worked with all ages of the children which ranged from 6 weeks to 14 years of age. I ended up becoming the Assistant director/office manager. Then upon moving to Troy, I started subbing in the different schools and love it, so I decided at the ripe age of 43 to start college.

I taught first grade for 3 years and a partial year, and third grade for 4 years with the Barbour County School system.  I am presently on my 5th year of teaching 4th grade math here at Pike County School.  I absolutely LOVE teaching!!!
