Deborah McClellan is the 2023-2024 Emerson Elementary Support Professional of the Year!
Deborah has been part of Team Tulsa for 27 years and has worked at Emerson for five years now. She is the school's health assistant, but also helps in classrooms and the front office when needed.
"My heart is with the kids and I would do anything I possibly can to help our babies. I will give them the shirt off my back; I’ve brought families food, transported kids, and even hopped a few fences in the name of children," she said.
She said she loves seeing the kids grow up.
"I have watched many kids grow from babies and many have their own babies now. It is my favorite part!"
Outside of work, Deborah enjoys spending time with her family and going to church.
"I have six of my own grandchildren, one great grandchild, and hundreds of kids that call me grandma from my years working in education. And they all think I can fix everything."
