Ms. Debbie Ogden
Ms. Deborah Ogden has been enjoying the students of Royal Oaks for over 30 years. In this role, she has taught every grade except first and sixth. She strongly believes children must be actively involved in their learning, feel safe to explore and learn from their mistakes, and in the importance of forming strong support teams with her students’ families. Azusa Pacific was the university from which Ms. Ogden received both her bachelors and masters degrees, while her teaching credential came from Cal State, Los Angeles.
Ms. Ogden, who is a 6-year resident of the Duarte community, lives with her partner. She is the mother of two grown children, a daughter in New York, and a son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter in Abu Dhabi. When she is not teaching, she is a voracious reader, likes to walk, ride her bike, and travel, and spend time with family and friends.
