Hello! My name is Debbie Kohner and I am one of the five-day preschool teachers. I feel very fortunate to teach in the WACS system, and am happy to work alongside parents, guiding your children along their academic and faith journey.

I taught in a Catholic elementary school in Des Moines, Iowa for six years prior to moving to Winona and beginning a twenty-year career as a Y Youth Director. My husband, Dan, and I raised three children who attended Winona Are Catholic Schools and graduated from Cotter High School. I am thrilled that our oldest granddaughter is now attending WACS too. It feels like home being in the St. Mary’s building. The warmth and sense of belonging that inspired us to send our                                                                                          children to WACS, continues to remain strong. I am honored to work with such                                                                                              dedicated colleagues and families.
