Debbie Hall

Medical Assisting Instructor

Cheyenne Campus

• AAS, Nursing, Amarillo College, Amarillo, TX
This is the second time that I have worked for IBMC. Originally I worked for IBMC when they first opened the Cheyenne Campus. I had the privilege of assisting in setting up the original campus in there. After about 4 years but came back to the campus and it was like coming home. My long term goal was to be a teacher. As a RN, you are always teaching patients and while that is very satisfying you do not get to see that ""Ah-hah" moment when everything comes together. I wanted and still want to see that moment when everything comes together for the student. That is more rewarding than words can describe. In my spare time: I really enjoy reading, nothing is better than a good book. I am also picking up sewing again because I have always found it so relaxing.

• Diploma, Medical Assisting, Concorde Career Institute, Denver, CO
I was inspired to become an instructor by a former instructor who I knew through my former employment. She kept encouraging me to apply, and so I did. I never realized how much I would enjoy it! I help my students to succeed by listening to them and helping them when they need extra encouragement. I try to make the activities and lessons relevant to the real world that they will experience when they graduate from IBMC. Outside of the classroom: I enjoy camping, fishing, reading, and home improvement projects. Well, maybe I don't so much enjoy the DIY projects as much as I am just good at them and feel accomplished when they are done!

I enjoy the diversity of our student body and am inspired by their stories and desire for self-improvement. I motivate my students by creating clarity in the classroom, being positive, and creating an atmosphere that enhances self-esteem. When I am not teaching you can find me skiing, working out, and spending time with my children

After making the decision to close my law office in Montrose and move to Windsor, I began looking at the possibility of teaching law instead of practicing it. I have taught in a college setting before, and felt that it would be a good fit for me at this point in my life. The students of IBMC College have inspired me to continue teaching and sharing my passion for the law with them. Outside of my classroom: I enjoy mountaineering and astronomy!

I have had extensive experience with business and computers while serving 20 years as a member of the Air Force. Although I enjoyed working with computers, I wanted the opportunity to help individuals bring about a wonderful change to their life and family. I felt that IBMC provided me the best opportunity to use my passion, teaching, and my desire to make a difference in this world and apply it in a setting that is personal and caring. I believe that to motivate my students I must first get to know them as they attend my classes. It is crucial to help each of them understand that they are not just a number, but a complex and interesting individual who has made the most important, difficult and exciting decision of their life, one that will bring about a wonderful change to them and their families. You may not know: That I love just about anything outdoors. I have climbed 5 Fourteeners, have been part of a team of 10 who ran the 200 mile Wild West Relay, ran the 6.6 mile Bolder Boulder in 54 minutes and the Garden of the Gods and have done a triathlon. I also love fishing, camping and hiking which is one of the reasons we moved here to beautiful Colorado. Finally, one of the most important things that I believe directs everything I do is my faith; I am heavily involved in teaching in the children's ministry in my church. I have a deep desire to impact the future generation.
