Debra Bottoms

I am proud to be the new Principal at Liberty Grove. Liberty Grove has such a warm and caring atmosphere with an emphasis on student academic growth. The students are respectful and ready to learn. We are committed to educating the whole child and improving academic success. I am prepared to partner with parents and our community in order to expand the areas of opportunity for our students and their future.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas in 2006 and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Dallas Baptist University in 2013.

I was the assistant principal for 5 years at Groves Elementary in Wylie and previously taught first and second grades for 6 years at Smith Elementary in Wylie. I enjoy building lasting relationships with students, parents, teachers, and staff. I look forward to all the great things ahead for Liberty Grove.

My wonderful husband, Chuck, and I were married in 2003. We have two little boys, Charlie who was born in 2015 and Sam who was born in 2017. We also have a black lab and border collie mix named Georgie. We enjoy traveling together to new places, entertaining at home, and spending time with family and friends

I’m elated to begin my second year as a Liberty Grove Gator! I love being part of such a warm, welcoming, and caring school family that puts the whole child and student success above everything else. Our students, staff, parents, families, and community stakeholders will continue to work together to provide the best possible learning environment and future learning opportunities for all of our students.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Learning and Development from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006. In addition, I received my Master of Education degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 2016.

Prior to becoming an assistant principal, I served as an instructional design facilitator for one year in Garland ISD and an instructional support teacher for four years at Davis Elementary School in Garland ISD. I also taught Kindergarten for six years at Shugart Elementary School in Garland ISD and 3rd grade for one year at Pirrung Elementary School in Mesquite ISD.

My amazing husband, Chris, and I have been married since 2012, and we have a sweet puppy named Astro. We’re excited to announce that our first child is on the way, a precious baby girl due in December 2019! We’re both avid University of Texas at Austin sports fans, love to travel, and enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
