Preschool Staff

Debbie Hilliard
Preschool Director

I am very honored and excited to have been involved with this remarkable Catholic community for the last 4 years as the Preschool Director. Having been previously employed at St. Joan of Arc parish as both a Pre-K and a Kindergarten teacher, I feel as though He has brought me back home! It is truly a blessing to be a part of this Catholic preschool where I am able to share my faith and His love with our families and children. Pursuant to this wonderful opportunity, I was the Director at Our Lady of Joy Preschool & Kindergarten for 5 years. I am a native of York, Pennsylvania where I received a BA in Psychology, with a Minor in Early Childhood Education from Penn State University and pursued my Masters in Clinical Child Psychology at Loyola College. I have lived in Arizona for the last 25 years, and have a 23 year old son. I love the fact that I now live only 5 minutes from work! Since returning to this parish, I am an adorer for Perpetual Adoration, in which I also assist as an hourly captain. You may also find me in a “crazy hat” during our delicious parish Fish Frys! I am so grateful to be part of this active, caring and giving community! It always amazes me how often we are given the opportunity to experience His undying love through the selfless actions of our fellow parishioners.
