Debi Crimmins

Vice President, Customer Advocacy and Director of Literacy
As a former Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Florida, Debi Crimmins has supervised and coordinated the district’s secondary language arts department, blended learning models, intervention implementation, curriculum and instruction vertical mapping, state assessment analysis, school turn around reform, and professional development services for all elementary, middle, and high schools.

Previously, she coordinated literacy and intervention design, language arts curriculum writing, and literacy leadership institutes as Orange County’s Secondary Language Arts Director. In addition to her administrative experience, Debi has taught graduate and undergraduate literacy education programs in colleges throughout Florida, where she has worked with beginning to veteran educators, pulling from her classroom experience as a language arts, literacy, and intervention reading teacher in the intermediate, middle, and high school setting.

Debi’s passion for literacy instruction and blended learning, coupled with a rigorous commitment to improving professional development for teachers, is modeled throughout her contemporary, research-based workshops, keynotes, seminars, and institutes around the country, as she utilizes best practice from her teaching experience as well as her Ph.D. in Literacy Intervention Instruction. Her research has been published in the English Journal, Phi Delta Kappa, ASCD, and within literacy instruction books by Christopher Gordon Publishers.
