I would like to take this time to welcome you and your son/daughter to 8th grade science. I know we are all excited about starting a new school year and I hope together we can keep the enthusiasm growing every week. My name is Mr. Duryea, and this is my 3rd year in education. I am a graduate of Angelo State University where I received a B.S. in Kinesiology - Exercise Science and M.Ed in Coaching and Sport Administration. I enjoy teaching middle school students and love the challenges and rewards that my students give me.
