Welcome to the SVA Staff Directory!
Middle School Teacher
Hello, my name is Debbie Gary and I have been a teacher for 14 years. I currently teach middle school math at SkyView and have been part of this wonderful community since it opened in 2010. I have taught kindergarten, 4th grade and middle school. I love teaching because I love to encourage students. I am married and have a daughter in high school. We love to be outdoors, have big family gatherings, watch movies, and play games.

Assistant Speech & Language Therapist
I am a Colorado native and actually attended Douglas County schools growing up! It’s exciting to be back working in DCSD as a Speech and Language Therapist for my 4th year at SVA. I live with my husband on acreage in Elbert County and am working hard to convince him that we need to add a miniature cow to our family! We enjoy hosting dinner parties with friends, camping and boating with our dog, and watching sunsets on our patio.

Elementary School Teacher
Music has always been a part of my life since I was a young child – now I have the blessing and privilege of sharing music with students. I am honored to start my seventh year at SkyView teaching K-5th grade music and directing the Sounds of the Sky Elementary Choir. I grew up in Littleton, CO, and now live in Parker with my husband and three boys. Dan and I have been married for 23 years and our three boys are 19, 16, and 13. I enjoy golfing, walks, participating on my church worship team, coffee, and spending time with my family (we play lots of games and outdoor activities).

With a passion for math and science, the creativity of an inventor, insight of a poet, vision of an artist and the heart that cares for each student, I bring energy and excitement to the classroom. New to SkyView but a veteran teacher in other ways, I come from a varied background of experience and expertise. I enjoy reading, writing, painting and most of all, time with family and friends.
