My name is Deborah Newman. I have been a teacher at Project Help since 1992. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in university studies degree with a concentration in elementary and special education. I would love to pursue a degree in social work with a concentration on families. I have attended numerous workshops and taken classes to increase my knowledge for teaching young children.

Over the past 16 years I have been privileged to impact the lives of so many children, empower families, provide hope, encouragement, and shape the future one child at a time.

As I think about the children and families who have become a part of my life, I reflect on the beautiful memories of my older daughter Dede and my husband Buddy. Their lives touched so many!

Denisha, my younger daughter will attends MTSU. In October I became a proud grandmother. Gabriel Trenton is a wonderful grandson and takes my breath away.

Since working at Project Help, the children and staff have taught me the importance of laughter, patience, and the real meaning of finding joy in the small things. My goal is to continue making a positive difference in the lives of children, treating them as individuals, and loving them unconditionally.
