Hi-my name is Amber Duran. I am an 8th grade ELA/History Core teacher at Winton Middle School in Winton, California. I have been with my husband for over 20 years, and we have three boys ages 16, 14, and 12. We have a new puppy, named Dodge, that we brought home in August. He is yellow Labrador retriever. In my “free” time, I help my husband with his business( I am his secretary/accountant/slave/book keeper), I am on the Adult Steering Committee for my son’s 4-H club (I answer emails and keep track of attendance and whatever else I am voluntold), and I am coaching Pentathlon. When I have the opportunity, I love to go camping with my family and to the beach. Life keeps me busy, but it is good!
