Hello, My Name Is

Mr. Duncan

Mr. Duncan

I am the fifth grade Math and Science teacher here at Wingate Elementary School.  This is my 9th year of teaching and I am also the Safety Patrol Coordinator for our building.  I also serve in various educational leadership roles throughout the state such as an I-STEM Area Leader and an educational consultant for the Illinois State Board of Education.  I am the 2016 Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics Excellence in Elementary Mathematics Award recipient as well as an Illinois Top 5 State Finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.  This prestigious award is the highest honor a mathematics or science teacher may receive in the nation and I am very proud to represent our students, families, and school district.  The partnership and open communication between home and school are paramount to our students' success and the driving force for our classroom receiving this incredible recognition.  I believe when we all respect and work with one another towards a common goal, we can accomplish feats unimaginable.
