Welcome to Festus Middle School Technology!
My name is Mrs. DeBolt. I teach 7th and 8th grade Technology. I have a Bachelor's degree from Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) in Cape Girardeau, MO. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Secondary Social Studies Education degree. I worked one year at Mascoutah High School in Illinois as an instructional technology aid. Then I moved to Jefferson City, MO to be a high school social studies teacher there. I taught psychology, sociology, and American history. Then in 2008, I began working in this position. I graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a Master's degree for Instructional Technology Leadership. It has been very fun because we get to work differently than in many other classes and have lots of laughs in here. I like that technology is always changing and so are my lessons!
I became Mrs. DeBolt in 2009 when I married my husband Chris. We live in Affton which is often shocking to my students since it's a bit of a drive. We have two dogs named Gabby and Izzy. They don't get as much attention anymore since we have been blessed with three children! My daughter McKenna quite a character! She is five now and she is so much fun! My twin boys, Abram and Cooper, just turned three and they are definitely double trouble! I love my home family and we are very close. I'm excited to invite more students into my school family and I always call them "my kids!"
