Mrs. Kris Debenport

The 2020-2021 school year begins Mrs. Kris Debenport's 28th year of teaching middle school math.  During my first nine years, I taught 7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I.  This is my nineteenth year at CrossRoads.  After attending Eau Claire High School and graduating from Irmo High School, I earned my BAIS degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Secondary Education with a Middle School Math emphasis from the University of South Carolina.  GO GAMECOCKS!!  I am endorsed to teach Gifted and Talented students and am a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescence Mathematics.  At CrossRoads, I am also the team leader for Team 2 and the coach for the Math Olympiad team.


I am actively involved at First Baptist Church of Columbia and live in the Irmo area with my husband of twenty-eight years and two children (22-year-old Emma and 17-year-old Jake).  In my "free-time" I enjoy reading, traveling, cheering-on my son in Irmo Cross Country meets & Irmo Boys Lacrosse games, and spending time with my family.
