Ms. Debbie Gilstrap

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am Debbie Gilstrap, a native to the Dallas area.  This is my fourth year with PISD and my second year at PHS! My teaching experience includes Special and General Education, with a specialization in Dyslexia.  I completed the Alphabetic Phonics program in 2004 and received my certification as an Academic Language Therapist through the SMU Learning Therapy program.  Prior to coming to PISD, I provided reading intervention for students at the Luke Waits Center, at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital (TSRH), in Dallas.  During my time at TSRH, I became a qualified instructor for teachers seeking certification using the Take Flight Intervention curriculum.  My passions include, teaching, spending quality time with family, music, learning, and the great outdoors.
