My name is Debbie Baczewski and I will be teaching kindergarten for the rest of this year!  This is my second year of teaching kindergarten and I am looking forward to spending the rest of the school year with your student.  I graduated from Southern Illinois Community College in Belleville with two Associates in Business Administration.  I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education.  I grew up in Belleville Illinois.  I have lived in Highland Illinois for 35 years.  I live there with my husband and dog Rufus.
