Ms. Eman was raised as a military dependent - growing up mainly in Hawaii and graduating from a Catholic high school in North Dakota. She has lived in Tucson for twenty-three years. She is starting her seventh year at Magee. Prior to becoming a counselor she worked as a kindergarten teacher and as a woodworking teacher in the K-3 program. She loved those years, but nothing compares to working with middle school students. The ups and downs of their lives definitely keeps things interesting - and she loves every minute of it (almost) ! If nothing else she would like all middle school students to leave Magee with a strong belief in themselves and their abilities. She does her best to take care of the students whose last names begin with L-Z .
Before working at Magee, she was a long-term substitute counselor at Naylor Middle School and Grijalva Elementary. She serves students whose last name begins with the letters A through K.
Prior to joining TUSD, Debbie spent many years counseling and creating workshops that pertained to a variety of issues and populations. Debbie says: “I am proud and happy to be at such an awesome school. Two important beliefs I have related to Magee students are: Middle school years are transitional and middle school personalities will not last forever. Students will do things at this age without thinking about the consequences. Through caring, yet firm guidance, students can learn from their mistakes and grow to be good students, as well as caring, productive individuals. I try to help students develop good academic, social, and critical thinking/problem solving skills that will serve them throughout their school years and allow them to be self-supporting and productive adults.
Ms. Harwell is the office manager at Magee. A native Tucsonan, she attended University High School and went on to get a BA in Chemistry from the University of Arizona. She joined the district in the Food Services Department and was very excited about the opportunity to work at Magee.
