Welcome to 6th grade! My name is Heather Duran; I have been teaching for twenty-one years now! :0) I received my Bachelor's Degree from ASU West, and my Master's Degree from NAU. I have three children: Shane is in 9th grade at Sandra Day O'Connor High School, Jenny is in 6th grade here at Stetson Hills, and Michael is in Kindergarten here at Stetson Hills.
I am looking forward to a great year! I believe communication is very important. Please feel free contact me if you have any questions.
Please encourage your child to read at home as much as possible. It is one of the most important things you can do to increase your child's proficiency in reading.
The genre for our 4th quarter book report is "Free Choice". Students may choose a book from any genre as long as it is at least 6th grade level,and at least 100 pages. The project will be due May 7, 2014.
