Mrs. Maryam Duran

I am Maryam Duran and so grateful to be part of Gator Family.  I am excited to be your (your student's) teacher. I know this is going to be a great year for all of us to grow and learn together.    
I graduated from Barton College and in continuing with my passion for Special Education I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Special Education. I value myself as a life long learner and love to take any opportunity to advance my knowledge in ways that will help me be the best teacher for our students. 
 
I was born in Texas and from there have been all over. Being the child of a military family I had the opportunity to live on four continents and six states (that was a lot of different schools).  My family moved to North Carolina in 2013. My husband and I have two children; Mara (13 years, 8th grade) and and JD (11 years, 6th grade) both will be attending Archer Lodge  this year. 
 
When I am not teaching or planning awesome stuff for us to do at school, I enjoy  spending time with my family, reading, and gardening.
