• My name is Debra Virden and this is my 4th year teaching here at Bowie. I am excited for the incredible adventure before me with this new school year and look forward to sharing it with you and your child.


    My expectations of your child this year: be punctual, be positive, be prepared, be productive and be polite.

     My expectations of myself for your child: be visual, be consistent, be firm and be fair.


    My tutoring times: Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 8:00am-8:35am; Thursday afternoon from 4:20pm-5:00pm


    Remind is an app that I use to send out reminders about classwork, homework, quizzes and tests. I encourage you and your child to join.

    I will make every effort to help your child to be comfortable communicating with me and will facilitate regular check-ins. However, I appreciate how difficult that initial communication can be, so I request your help with this. One of the easiest ways to stay involved is through Parent Portal. If you have not signed up, please do so. You will be able to keep up with your child’s grades and attendance. Please encourage your child to keep me updated and always feel free to reach out yourself. Your child’s success is my goal, let’s tackle it together!
