Mrs. Debbie Wagner

Hi, my name is Debbie Wagner – this year, I will begin my 21st year of teaching at St. John. I have worked with children for over 25 years. I am a graduate of St. John Lutheran, Defiance High School and The Defiance College. i have designed, implemented and taught the Parents & 2’s classes. I have also taught 3’s, 4’s, and our multi-age classes. This year, I will be teaching the 3 & 5 day AM four year olds and the 3 & 5 Day PM four year olds.
I am married to a wonderful man Mark, and we have four children Nicole, Graham, Kane, and Adam all who attended St. John Lutheran School.
Our grandchildren, Harper and Bradley, live in Lake Worth, FL with our daughter, (who is pregnant with baby number three due in November), and her husband, Bryce Beilharz. Our son Graham and his wife Ashley live in Cincinnati, and have a baby girl Greer. My son Adam and his wife Kirsten call Fairview Park, Ohio their home, while our son Kane resides in Defiance.
I am passionate about Project Based Learning in the early childhood classroom, where children investigate, collaborate, and share topics of their interest.

Mission Statement

My mission is to prepare each child with 21st century skills while learning about the free gift of grace that God provides them!
