Bright Futures

Mrs. Stone

My husband, two daughters and I have been a part of the Norwood "family" since our oldest began Bright Futures in 2004.  I have enjoyed being a teacher assistant for Norwood since 2013. Before I stayed at home with our girls for several years, I taught Early Childhood Special Education for a year and Kindergarten for three years.  I have a BS in Education from ISU and a BA in Communications from Bradley University.  I enjoy crafts and the outdoors with my family.



My name is Debbie Otten and I am the teaching assistant for the Norwood Bright Futures program.  I started my career in 1993.  I love having the opportunity to support children & their families in becoming successful lifelong learners.  I enjoy watching them continue to grow at Norwood and beyond!!  My other loves are family, friends and my grandchildren.
