About Mrs. Duran

    Hello! I am so excited to join the music team at Standley Lake High School!
    I am starting my thirteenth year with Jeffco after spending my first twelve in the Arvada area. I am a Colorado native and Jeffco graduate. I studied euphonium and earned a Bachelor of Music Education at the University of Colorado (GO BUFFS!). I hold a  Master of Arts in Education from Regis University, and I am currently back at CU working on a Master of Music Education degree. I am addicted to learning and am constantly honing my skills as both a musician and a teacher. I perform regularly with the Jeffco Brass, a brass ensemble made of amatuer musicians that love brass and love to play for the community.
   Outside of school, I love to ride my road bike, play with my sweet old dog Maggie, shop, read, and hang out with my awesome husband Jeff. I am addicted to Harry Potter, and I unashamed to admit that I love Twilight...(the books AND the time of day!)
