Debbie Hecky was born and raised in Northern Kentucky. She earned her BA in mathematics at Georgetown College and went onto receive her Master’s in Education from Marian College, in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
Early in her teaching career she taught in Kettering, Ohio and Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Debbie enjoyed teaching at Theisen Middle School in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin for eleven years. In 2000, Debbie and her family returned to Northern Kentucky and at that time she joined the staff at Scott High School. She has valued the years that she has devoted to teaching geometry, advanced topics, and pre-calculus. In the past two years her career has been enriched by the work that the Kenton County School District has been involved in with the Gates Foundation for the math department. Debbie looks forward to the implementation of the Springboard curriculum which will enable our department to meet the needs and expectations of the new common core standards implemented by the state. This year Mrs. Hecky will be serving as a lead teacher for the implementation of the Gates Foundation work in the classrooms.
While teaching at Scott, Debbie has served on the Gifted and Talented Committee and has been a resource teacher for the Kentucky Training Internship Program for the past eight years. She has served as the chairperson of the math department for the past five years and a member of the Curriculum Committee during that time.
Being the advisor to National Honor Society has been a privilege for Mrs. Hecky over the last nine years. She enjoys working with the students to exemplify the four pillars of the society which are scholarship, leadership, character and service. This organization requires each member to commit to 60 service hours a year and has been responsible for the annual Trick or Treat for Canned Goods in the Taylor Mill community for many years. Mrs. Hecky facilitates this group’s response to numerous requests for volunteers from various schools in the Kenton County school district and community organizations.
