teressaI am excited to be joining the McSpedden Family this year as the Secretary.  Before moving to McSpedden I was at Riddle Elementary for 5 years in the front office, two years in the Cafeteria and a parent there since 2006.

My husband and I moved to Texas 17 years ago from New Zealand.  We have three children, Larissa  (22) graduated from Liberty High School and is studying Event Planning and Marketing at Stephen F. Austin University, Tamara (19) also graduated from Liberty High School and is studying in the Honors Engineering Program at the University of Auckland in New Zealand and Luka (14) who is a Freshman at Lebanon Trail High School.

We love all things Liverpool - The Beatles & Liverpool Soccer Club!  We have been fortunate enough to have travelled to Liverpool twice and met our heroes Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher as well as visited every historical Beatles site imaginable.  

My husband and I are both of Croatian decent so we travel a lot between New Zealand and Croatia to visit family.  In my free time I like to watch whatever events my kids are participating in, travel, read, cook and whenever possible find my happy place at the beach. 

Teressa Pavich, Secretary

gretchenHi, my name is Gretchen Debbage, and I’m the receptionist of our school. I’ve had the privilege of working at McSpedden since it opened and became part of this wonderful family.

I grew up in Houston but got married and lived my adult life in California. That is where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communications at California State University, Fullerton.  As I fell in love with California, my parting words to the south were, “I’ll never go back to Texas!”

So, never say never as I’ve called Frisco my home for 10 years. I’m lucky to have a husband of 30 years and 2 lovely daughters to enjoy life with.

Looking forward to my 4th year at McSpedden!


dedeHello, my name is Danedra Wilson, but everyone calls me DeeDee. I am thrilled to be the Registrar/Data Clerk here at McSpedden Elementary for the second year.

I grew up in Michigan where I owned and operated a childcare center for over 18 years. Working with children has always been a joy of mine. I was blessed to marry my high school sweetheart, and we just celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary.  We have a 10 year old daughter who is in 5th grade.

It is a pleasure to be a part of the McSpedden family, and I consider myself very fortunate to be able work alongside such an amazing team daily.
