Welcome to 6th Grade at Jasper Middle School!  I am so excited to begin my 23rd year teaching 6th graders.  I am even more excited to see how far my students will excel in math this school year.  Together, we WILL achieve greatness.

I earned my teaching degree from Brenau University with a Bachelor's Degree in Middle Grades Education.  I later earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and a Specialist's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Piedmont College. I have also earned the gifted endorsement through North Georgia RESA.

I am married to Tim Duncan and have been blessed with three handsome sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law and two precious grandbabies - Paisley Grace and Gunner Wyatt. I spend as much of my free time as possible spoiling my grandbabies and with my family.  We watch a lot of Andy Griffith and sports - GO DAWGS!
