Debra McKinney

Hello! My name is Mrs. McKinney, and I am an English teacher at Northwestern. This year marks my 22nd year as an educator. I love reading, gardening, and hiking. I have two cats, two grown children (both Northwestern graduates—GO, TROJANS!), and my husband of 28 years. I am looking forward to helping students become stronger readers and writers.
