Testimonials

“Deb Tackmann is one of the most conscientious, hard-working, dedicated teachers I have ever

worked with in my years of educational experiences, and the plethora of local, state, and national

recognition that she has received is a credit to her professionalism.”

Susan L. Kern, Assistant Principal, North HS

“Deb has a very keen sense of motivating her students while making
the information taught relevant, pertinent, and practical. Deb
truly is an educator who ‘makes a difference’ in the lives of her
students every day. She molds, shapes, and even, in some cases,
saves lives as she teaches daily.”

Tom Kidd, Trainer/Consultant
