Welcome to our class! My name is Deborah Lyman. I was born and raised in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I received my Bachelors of Elementary Education from BYU-Idaho in 2005. My first job was teaching 3rd grade in Las Vegas, NV. It was there that I met my husband, Richard Lyman. We returned to Jackson after we were married in 2006. I worked there until our first child, Alanna was born. At that time, we decided that we wanted to settle in Southeast Idaho. I was hired in Pocatello to teach 3rd grade at Lewis and Clark Elementary. I taught there for two years and then moved to Hawthorne with the sixth grade students. It was while I was here for my first year that our son, Howie was born. This is my second year here at Hawthorne and I look forward to working with your children this year!
