She won several state and national teaching awards, including the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching.

Deborah’s leadership skills were developed by being a math department chair, a math consultant, a bilingual education instructor at the University of Texas at El Paso, and the Coordinator for the National Board Resource Center in El Paso. Ms. Svedman spent five years volunteering for a piano festival and competition in Colorado, where she was responsible for organizing and scheduling several rounds of competition plus festival events such as masterclasses, presentations and recitals, website maintenance, creating event emails, correspondence with competitors, chauffeuring guest artists, and a host of other duties.
