Hello!  My name is Debby Mathis!


Hello!  My name is Debby Mathis and I have had the pleasure of being the counselor at Wall School since the fall of 1995.  I graduated from Kalamazoo College with a major in Sociology and a minor in Spanish.   I received my Masters in Counseling from Indiana University South Bend.  Prior to coming to Sturgis Public Schools I was  a caseworker for the Friend of the Court.

I have participated in Reality Therapy training and am a Certified Trauma and Loss School Specialist.  I have experience in the field of substance abuse and received extensive training in divorce and family issues while with the Friend of the Court.  I have training in behavior management systems, conduct disorders, oppositional defiant behavior, and attention deficit disorder.  There is always more to learn about how to help children reach their potential in school.

I view my role as that of advocate and support for all students, staff, parents and our community.  I am awed each day by the beauty and resiliency of our students.  It is a privilege to work with your children.  I believe that all children can learn and be successful in school and my goal is to help in that process.
