Paulette Duran, Kindergarten
My name is Paulette Duran. I earned a BA in Child Psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder. I recently completed my initial teaching license through Regis University. My goal is to earn a MA in Early Childhood Education.
Working at St. Bernadette Catholic School has been a very enlightening experience for me. This school has a warm Catholic atmosphere with families and teachers who truly want to be here. The teachers love working with the students, and it shows in each child. All of my of my own boys have graduated from St. Bernadette and they have been a wonderful example of how well-prepared St. Bernadette students are when they reach high school. Knowing that all of these children are receiving a widely-recognized, quality education is a blessing that is beyond measure!
