Meet Debbie Sperry

Mrs. Sperry has been actively helping young kids learn to read and write for over 7 years.  She taught grades K-2 at Orchard Hills Elementary and has helped kids on a private basis for hundreds of hours.  She is known for her cheerful engaging style that helps kids find joy and confidence in their literacy skills.

Debbie graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Utah Valley University.  She ranked at the top of her class with a 4.0 GPA and was also recognized as being in the top 15% nationwide for her score on the Praxis exam.  She has completed several courses in a master’s program in applied behavior analysis to learn more about how to help kids with autism spectrum disorder and learning challenges. She has a current Utah teaching certificate and has long been the champion of kids who struggle academically.

Mrs. Sperry participated in a research project with UVU faculty on the use of play in the development of young children.  She is a firm believer that reading and writing should be fun.  She has offered individualized and innovative approaches to young readers to help them overcome self-doubt and access feelings of success and accomplishment in the literacy arena.

She has a passion for the life sciences and claims sharing monarch butterflies and baby chicks with kids as a couple of her favorite things to do.  She is the mother of 4 and grandmother of 7 delightful grandchildren.
