My name is Debbie Bedrin and I am a third grade teacher at Grand Isle School. This is my 42nd year teaching at Grand Isle. I have enjoyed teaching a third grade class for most of those years but I have also taught a multi-aged 2/3class and taught the Gifted and Talented Program called FOCUS during these years. I am a native Vermonter from Burlington, where I attended the University of Vermont .I live on Lake Champlain with my husband and dog, Benguela. We have six children and seven grandchildren. I love to read and swim, and body surf in the ocean.
