Debbie Stenzel earned her B.S. degree in Education from the University of Minnesota in the Twin Cities and currently holds a teaching license from the State of Minnesota.  She has taught secondary level classes in the St. Paul public school district and has served as a substitute teacher for her local school district as well.  Her desire to help students succeed is evident by her role as a math tutor at Anoka Technical College Adult Basic Education and her involvement in high school level teaching in homeschool co-op settings.  Economics, Apologia Sciences, all levels of math through Algebra 2, as well as U.S. History, World History, Study Skills, World Religions, Intro to Computers, American Government and Geography are just some of the subjects she has taught. 

In addition, Debbie has a passion for helping students earn college credit via alternative routes thus opening doors to their future that would be closed if they traveled by the traditional route.  She has led many successful study groups that have assisted students in earning over 300 college credits for their high school coursework.  Consulting with other families and sharing what she has learned to assist them in negotiating the path to a college degree provides Debbie with great satisfaction.  Her services include CLEP/DSST coaching, high school planning, guidance through the PSEO process, creating a high school transcript, preparing for college placement exams, degree planning and more.

Debbie seeks to encourage and guide all of her students to reach their full potential and takes great pleasure when students exceed their own expectations through their educational accomplishments.  She knows that, for her personally, serving the Lord includes helping her students reach their full academic potential so they can be prepared for whatever doors the Lord opens for them in their future.  Debbie and her husband Paul have homeschooled their own five children through high school and college while owning and operating a landscape/nursery business in the Nowthen area.
