About the Teacher

Deb Jarvis
My name is Deborah Jarvis, and I am one of the English teachers at Pelham High School. I have been teaching at Manchester and Nashua Community Colleges for the past seven years and have enjoyed a return to high school teaching.

I graduated many years ago from Andover High School in Massachusetts, and I hold a BA in English from Framingham State University (1993), a M.ED in Education from Southern New Hampshire University(2008), and a MA in Literature and Writing from Rivier University(2013).

I am married, have two children -Will and Rose - both of whom are in college, live with two large greyhounds: Whither and Nausicaa, and am bossed around by four cats: Isadore, Kahtrah, Ferris, and Thomas. When I am not grading or doing things with the family, I enjoy reading a good book, playing Minecraft or other video games, and writing.

I am looking forward to working with your children this year and helping them to further their knowledge and understanding of the English Language.
