Mrs. Schaefer's 3rd Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Schaefer's third grade! 


My name is Deborah Schaefer and I have been teaching third grade in Durand Area Schools since 2001.  I am a Durand High School graduate; I earned my Bachelors degree from Western Michigan University and my Masters degree from Marygrove College.  I live in Durand and have twin sons who attend school in Durand. 


I am very excited to work with your child each day!
