All Bristow Bears must remember to....
My name is Lyndsey L Duke and I am proud to be a Bristow Bear! I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2010. During college, I traveled to Barcelona, Spain and completed a portion of my student teaching abroad. It was a great learning experience where I found a love for working with scholars from various cultures. I started teaching immediately following graduation and have loved getting to learn and grow along with my scholars. I completed my Gifted and Talented Endorsement in the Summer 2015 and my Master's in Teacher Leadership with a concentration in Curriculum design in December 2015. I will begin my Specialist Degree in Administration in August 2016.
Our Bristow Bear classroom uses Remind for communication purposes. I hope that you will find it to be very useful throughout the year with keeping you informed on announcements, assignments, and general information. To sign up for our Remind, text @dukeclass to 81010 or email email@example.com. Communication between home and school is imperative to the success of each scholar therefore; if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please do not hesitate to call or email!
The goal of my classroom is to create well-rounded scholars who know their strengths and passions and that exhibit the 8 habits. It is my job as their teacher to help them find their voice (Habit 8) and unleash their potential to influence others in the world around them. I hold high expectations for all scholars and stive to ensure that each scholar succeeds based on their individual learning needs.
This is going to be a phenomenal year for you and your child. Thank you for the support of your child because I am so excited to have each of these wonderful children in my classroom as Bristow Bears! Together we can prepare our youth of today for tomorrow's world!
