Mrs. Kris Debenport
The 2018-19 school year begins Mrs. Kris Debenport's 26th year of teaching middle school math. During my first nine years, I taught 7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra I. This will be my seventeenth 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 coach for the Math Olympiad team (17th year) and the Math Department Chairperson (7th year).
I am actively involved at First Baptist Church of Columbia and live in the Irmo area with my husband of twenty-six years and two children (20-year-old Emma and 15-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.
