Debra Barbre
Debra Barbre teaches Journalism 1 and advises the Eagle Eye Staff.  She has degrees in English, Communications and Direct Marketing. Before becoming adviser 5 years ago, Barbre taught Broadcast Journalism and Screenwriting at Huntington Beach High School and served as Public Relations Liaison for the Academy of Performing Arts.  Before becoming a teacher, Barbre worked in the marketing of musical instruments to schools and institutions, writing professional copy for magazines, web, newsletters, advertisements, video projects, blogs, podcasts and public relations, as well as freelance work.  She also ran a graphic design business, which gave her the Adobe chops to teach InDesign.  “Teaching journalism was always my intent,” Barbre said. “I’m glad I was able to switch careers and come to SM, where, every year, my staff makes me proud.”
