Mrs. Durkee 5th Grade Teacher
I live in Karlstad with my husband, Barry, and our dog & two cats. I have four grown children, two boys & two girls.
I have had a variety of teaching experiences. Before coming to GMR, I was the Early Childhood coordinator and School Readiness teacher for Marshall County Central. When we moved to Karlstad seven years ago, I was a long term sub at Franklin Middle School in 6th grade Communications for most of a year. Prior to that, I taught reading intervention for K-6th grade in Alexandria. I have also taught 2nd-5th grades in private schools in the Elk River area and Moorhead. I graduated from Crown College with a degree in elem. ed. and took education classes at SCSU my junior year.
Some of my interests are reading, scrapbooking, and floral design. I enjoy hiking and kayaking.
I can be reached on Remind (parents), by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 782-2232, ext. 231.
