Mrs. Michelle Duncan

I was born to do this! Everyone in my family is either in the military, or is a teacher. Due to my father's military career, I was born in Germany and grew up in different parts of California. Dancing and figure skating in high school sparked my passion for teaching. I was a Teacher's Assistant for dance at Roseville High School and was a figure skating coach for 8 years. My experiences with coaching led me to want to work with kids full time. So, I decided to pursue a career in teaching. My BA in History and teaching license were attained through the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and I am currently working on my MA in Literacy: Curriculum and Instruction. This is my 11th year teaching at WHES and I have experience in every grade level.

I am petite (only 4'11") but have a BIG personality. I married the love of my life, Zach, in 2021 (he's 6'1") and we have a 1 yr old daughter named Ayla. We also have a German Shepard/ American Eskimo dog named Dex, and a cat named Max. My free time is spent on my very busy daughter, reading, and all things education.  I love teaching, and WHES has become my second home. I can't wait to meet you and start the year in Rm 17. :)
