Total Years in Education - 8 Years

In her own words . . .

“Over my eight years in the classroom my philosophy has changed because I have learned that to be successful I must let the students be in charge of learning. My students know that I love and care for each of them, and knowing that, they strive to do their best for themselves, for their parents, and for me. A child will not care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

In the words of others . . .

“Mrs. Duke’s professionalism is a nice balance between competence, experience, and cordiality. She sincerely cares for her fellow Bear Boulevard teachers, teacher assistants, parents and students she serves as well as our school district as a whole.” 
Kiersten Caballero, Bear Boulevard PreK Teacher/Team Leader

“Ms. Duke uses technology and community interest to enlist parent support in their child’s learning process. Her Watt on the Spot creation is just one example of her continuous efforts to bring together technology, parents, and community to support student growth and development.”
Kimberly Hammer, Bear Boulevard PreK Director
