Debbie Hatcher

Being a steward of the environment has always been a passion throughout my life. Being a teacher provides a valuable avenue to enrich the learning to children of protecting the environment.
— Debbie Hatcher

Debbie is a 4th-grade teacher at Maltby Elementary school who continually goes above and beyond with her students. She furthers her students’ education on the stormwater subjects covered by SCD’s lessons through continual reinforcement. Her students are thoughtful and appreciative and it’s largely due to her teaching. Debbie takes additional time out of her teaching schedule to review with her students and emphasize stormwater concerns and solutions. Mary Hale, SCD Youth Educator, said, “She is truly educating a generation of students appreciative of the planet where they live.”
