My name is Deborah Rodriguez. I graduated from Central Michigan University in 1998 with a Bachelor Degree in both Elementary and Special Education. I also have my minor in teaching Language Arts. I taught Special Education for 9 years, before currently teaching 5th grade. I love that I get to teach both Language Arts and Social Studies. My father and I are big history buffs. I believe that all students can learn and that education is the most powerful weapon to change the world. I love my students and consider them all my school family, so I push them to do their very best day in and day out. I live with my son and husband in Jenison, Michigan.
