Mrs. Chiara Duke

Welcome to fourth grade! This will be a year of lots of learning, personal and social development, and a year your child will reflect on in years to come. I look forward to working with you as a partner in your child's education for a successful year.

I have taught fourth grade for eighteen years at South Smiths Station Elementary School. Through the years I have taught all subjects (Language,Spelling, Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies). Presently I am teaching Reading/ Writing. I am involved with extra curricular activities, including being the Beta Club sponsor for our school.

I enjoy teaching and making a positive difference in a child's life. I teach in a manner that my students can apply what they learn into everyday life. I want my students to be prepared for the challenges they will face in their academic/life's career, as well as realize that they can make a difference in the world around them today and in the future.
