My name is Paddy Bell. I am the literacy facilitator for DMS and DJHS.
I graduated from DHS in 1972 and attended the University of Arkansas from 1972 - 1976. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Arkansas in 1976 with a BSE in education and obtained my MSE in Curriculum and Instruction from Arkansas State University in 2012. This is my 30th year teaching in the DeQueen School district.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Gary Bell, who is a State Farm agent in De Queen, Ar. We both attended De Queen High School , as did our three children. Our younger son, Richard, coaches football, basketball, and track in the the same district and teaches health in my middle school building.
