Welcome to Ms. Duell's 2nd Grade!
Welcome to second grade! This is my fourteenth year of teaching. I started my teaching career here at Hopkins teaching second grade and I've been here ever since. When I say that I can't imagine being at a different school I truly mean it because these classrooms and hallways are where I also grew up. I attended Hopkins, Meece Middle, and Somerset High School just like these students I am teaching will be doing. I really am a Briar Jumper through and through! I strive to do my best each day I walk into my classroom and hope I can instill those work habits in my students as well as teaching them that they will be learning all their lives because their are days they teach me things. My favorite time as a teacher is the moment that a student's "light bulb" comes on the catch a skill that they have been struggling with. Their eyes light up and they know that they can be successful. That fills me with joy and lets me know that I am in the correct profession!
