My name is Debbie Brooks and I am honored to serve Auburn City Schools as principal at Pick Elementary. I am in my 32nd year as an Alabama educator. I spent 16 years as a classroom teacher in grades 1st-6th and my last 16 years in administration. My philosophy is deeply rooted in my beliefs that all children can succeed when provided the appropriate support, tools and room to explore, investigate and discover on their own the many wonders of our world. I support inquiry-based instruction and work closely with teachers to encourage this level of teaching daily in our classrooms.
Leadership is our focus at Pick Elementary. We work to encourage a variety of opportunities for students to use their leadership skills in and out of school. Students work together throughout the academic day to learn and grow together!
We believe that parents play a critical role in the success of our school and we welcome your time, talents and treasures as we work with you to strengthen our program at Pick Elementary.
We encourage and invite you to get involved at Pick Elementary this year. We offer many opportunities for you to be involved throughout the academic year. It is important that we all share in the responsibility of shaping our young people to be productive citizens. Setting a positive example is the best way to do that! I hope you will join me as we work together to make this a fantastic year at PES!
