About Me: 

My name is Deb Knowles and I am a Teacher in a rural district of North Carolina. I am very excited to be a part of the World Pulse program. I came into teaching three years ago as a second career teacher and find my teaching experience thus far, to be both rewarding and frustrating. A good portion of my students are eager to learn and for these students I feel blessed to share a life-long gift of knowledge. However, there are some students who perhaps do not understand the value of an education.

It is for these students that I am looking for a alternate approach that would help them to understand the value of an education. I will have them help me sponsor a girl's education and follow her academic progress. It is my hope that our little group will grow into a chapter that encourages and supports the importance for girls to get an education, to stay in school, and break the cycle of poverty.

My Passions: 
Keeping kids in school
My Challenges: 
Poverty
My Vision for the Future: 
An appreciation of Education
My Areas of Expertise: 
Teacher, artist, Art Director, Production mgr
