Mrs. Debbie Maxwell, Counselor

Photo of Debbie MaxwellMrs. Debbie Maxwell is the Counselor at David Barton Elementary.  She attended Central Methodist College (Undergraduate) and Lincoln University (Master's Degree). Mrs. Maxwell wanted to become a counselor while she was a Kindergarten teacher because she saw many of her students working through very difficult situations.  She realized that she wanted to get her Master's Degree in Elementary Counseling so she could spend her days helping students with difficult situations.

This is Mrs. Maxwell’s 26th year in education. She spent 4 years in New Franklin prior to becoming a Pirate.  Mrs. Maxwell’s favorite memories are when she sees students, from every grade level, coming together to celebrate events like the Homecoming Parade. Her and her husband have one son, Trent, who is a Sophomore this year at BHS. As a family, they enjoy watching sports, traveling and going antiquing.
