My name is Debra Lay and I am teaching 3rd grade ELA, as well as providing small group intervention for K - 2 students here at L. Hollingworth. I received both my bachelor's degree and my master's in education from Bowling Green State University. I spent one year as a graduate assistant there tutoring students at the Reading Clinic before moving on to work in schools. Over the course of the last 35 years, I have worked with students from Kindergarten through high school with the goal of helping them develop strategies for improved reading comprehension, as well as, cultivate a love for reading.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter, two sons and our rescued dogs and cat. I live in the nearby city of Rossford, where I have been a lifelong resident.
I am excited to be a part of the Hollingworth family and to start the new school year!
