Debbie Lawler

Preschool Director

Debbie Lawler is the Preschool Director at Floris United Methodist Church. Debbie grew up in Tallahassee, Florida where her parents still live today. Debbie has a BA in Education from Arizona State University. She met her husband, Scott, when she was 15 and married him several years later. Debbie and Scott moved around the country while Scott served in the Air Force for 21 years. They settled here in the northern Virginia area in 1997. They also have two twenty-something aged children, Ryan and Ashley.
Debbie became the director at Floris UMC in May 2014. Floris UMC Preschool is the fourth preschool that Debbie has had the privilege to run in her career. Previously, she was a director in Warner Robins, Georgia; Hampton, Virginia; and Fairfax, Virginia. She is excited to take on the challenge of running a preschool with 175 children and 20 staff members. Debbie’s role also has her communicating with the parents, church staff, teachers, and of course, the preschoolers!

Favorite Bible verses: Matthew 19:26 and Philippians 4:13

First Job: Summer Camp counselor at First Baptist Church in Tallahassee

Perfect Day: Debbie’s perfect day is either when she is with her family skiing down the mountains in Breckenridge, Colorado or sitting on the beach (any beach!!!) with a good book and a cool beverage.
