Mrs. Patti Duckworth
My name is Patti Duckworth. This is my 14th year teaching in Marion County Schools. I have had the privilege of teaching at Evergreen and Sunrise Elementary Schools before coming to Saddlewood. I have taught both Kindergarten and 1st grade; 5 years Kindergarten and 1st Grade Learning Academy. I have also taught 4th grade math and science; the past 2 years in 5th. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA; home of the Steelers, Penguins, and Heinz Ketchup. I have a B.S. degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from WVU (Go Mountaineers!) and a M.A. in Communicative Disorders from the University of Pittsburgh. My family and I reside on the northeast side of Ocala. I have been married to my husband Billy for almost 25 years. We have a daughter Shelby who recently graduated with her A.A. and is now married living in Hawaii. We have 3 little furbabies; Boogie, Jalepeno and Max. In my spare time I enjoy baking, college football, NCIS, and spending time with my family. Keeping the lines of communication open is very important. You may contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org; by calling the school at 291-4075 after school between 2:10-3:00, or by messaging me on Class Dojo.
