Janis Duke

My name is Janis Duke and I am the science teacher on Princeton.  This is my second year of teaching at Union after moving from Lee's Summit, MO.  

My pathway to teaching is not a conventional one! I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, majoring in dental hygiene which I practiced for 12 years. After staying home when my boys were young, I began substitute teaching and fell in love with the classroom!  I returned to school and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Central MO.

My hope is to instill a curiosity about the world around us in my students that will lead each student to WANT to continue learning more and more about our amazing world!
