Meet the Teacher

Hi! I am Debbie Cox and I am the preschool teacher here at Rose Hamilton Elementary. I will begin my 30th year of employment and my 17th year of preschool with Centerville Schools in the fall of 2019.

I have been married to Doug Cox for 38 years. I have two adult children. My daughter MacKenzie teaches high school math at Lincoln High School and my son Cooper works at Ivy Tech. My family also includes my wonderful Boston Terrier, Chevy.

I love teaching preschool! I can't imagine having any other job. Preschool aged children are little learning sponges and it is a wonderful experience to be their teacher. I believe that preschool is the foundation to a great education.

I love reading and writing. I enjoy poetry, good books and good music (mostly 70's music) I am a big NASCAR fan! And I got to meet Dale Jr. this year so I checked that off the bucket list. Family and friends are very important to me. I like to play card games and old school board games. And someday I dream of writing books and to travel more. I love Yellowstone and Glacier National Park. I have Sharpie marker and dark chocolate addictions. I also have a serious need for Milkhouse diet vanilla cokes!

Everyday is a great day in preschool!
