Introducing Dee Firebaugh

Hello, parents!


Thank you for allowing me this opportunity to introduce myself as your new Family Engagement Facilitator. Over the past 20 years, I have worked in the BCSD Instructional Technology Department. After retiring last spring, I felt very fortunate to receive Mrs. Allen's invitation to return part-time to serve Burdell-Hunt parents and their families. I look forward to communicating with you throughout the 2021-2022 school year by providing helpful resources and important information for Burdell-Hunt parents and families. Let's work together at finding ways to encourage your child to reach his or her highest academic potential.


My hours at Burdell-Hunt Elementary are 7:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. each Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Please feel free to reach out to me through Remind, by email (dee.firebaugh@bcsdk12.net), or by phone (478-779-2931).


Serving you is my pleasure,

Dee Firebaugh
