 I graduated from Payson High school in Payson, Arizona. I relocated to Cortez and I received my Degree in Elementary Education from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado.  After teaching a few years I decided to continue my education and I chose to get my Masters of Education in Mathematics from Concordia University through online courses.


  I have enjoyed teaching kindergarten, first, third grade and now second grade.  Before I became a classroom teacher I worked at Manaugh Elementary as an Interventionist, helping students reach their reading goals.


Hello Everyone!

My name is Deb Luchtel. I am a second grade teacher at Manaugh Elementary. I enjoy working with your children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world.  

When I am not focusing on school work, I enjoy spending time with my family, going for jeep rides exploring and reading.
