My name is Denise Lybrand and I am the BCS EL Consulting Teacher.    I have been teaching ESL in Blount County for about 23 years.  I teach students in Kindergarten - 12th grades and coach the EL Teachers in our system.  I am very fortunate to have my students for many years and be able to develop a close relationship with the student  and their family.

I grew up in Bremen, GA and moved to Oneonta, AL  shortly after marrying my husband, Rick.  We have been married for 34 years and I love living in Alabama.  I have one daughter, Mandi, who taught for many years but now manages a law office.  My family loves to travel and try new adventures together.  You will find us on a cruise ship a couple of times a year.  On our latest adventure, we zip-lined and hiked through a rain forest, explored ancient forts,  and snorkeled with huge turtles in the Caribbean Sea.
