Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Debbie Gabelman. I am excited to start my second year teaching fourth grade at New Albany Intermediate School.
I attended The Ohio State University where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. For several years, I worked for a large consumer packaged goods company in a variety of roles including Customer Supply Chain Manager. Although I enjoyed many aspects of my first profession, I made the decision that I wanted a career that was more meaningful to me. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping a child reach their full potential and become life long learners. After three years of attending college full time and substitute teaching, I completed Otterbein University’s Post Baccalaureate Early Childhood (Pk-3) Initial Licensure program and the 4/5 Generalist Endorsement. In the next few years, I intend to return to school to obtain a Masters in Education.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Matt, our two amazing kids, and our golden retriever, Max. Our daughter, Bryce, runs cross-country and track and will be a senior in high school. Our son, Ben, is in 8th grade and plays basketball and soccer and runs track and cross country. When I’m not cheering on kids at games or meets, I love to read, travel, and be with friends and family.
