Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Debra Byrd
I have been teaching at Smiths Station High School since 2008 and I am looking forward to many more years! I am married to my wonderful husband, Doug, and we have two children, Emma (9) and Jack (4). I earned my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Secondary Mathematics Education from Auburn University. I always wanted to help people and I chose mathematics because I knew many people struggled with it. I LOVE teaching math and Smiths Station High School! I believe math is elegant and the key to logical reasoning and the sciences (which I also love).
Currently, I sponsor the Math Team with great help from all of the Math Department in preparing our students for competitions. Mrs. Kenney especially helps with co-sponsoring this team. I also sponsor Mu Alpha Theta, our math honor society, with help from Mrs. Harris.
