Mrs. Debbie McKinley

Hello! My name is Debbie McKinley. I am originally from Kansas. I obtained my B.S. in Elementary Education from a small private College in Wichita and taught three years in the public school system there before staying home to have kids and be a foster parent. My family consists of my husband, my son Samuel who will be in 11th gradet this year and my daughter Maci, who will be in 8th grade.

My family moved to Idaho in 2010 and I have taught Special Education, Kindergarten and then moved to first grade which has my heart. This is my 3rd year teaching at Hillsdale Elementary School and my fifth year teaching first grade for the West Ada District.

I’m looking forward to getting to know your child and getting this year started! It is important that we all work together as a team in order to help your child succeed. If you ever have any questions, please give me a call at  208-350-4432, ext. 142.

You can leave a message and I will return your phone call as soon as possible. 

We can also make an appointment to meet before or after school.

Suggestion for School Supply List: Students do not need individual head phones. I have a set for the class. If you want your child to have their own, head phones only please, no ear buds. We do not need Pocket Folders in my class.
