Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Patti Duckworth
My name is Patti Duckworth. This is my 11th year teaching in Marion County Public Schools and my 10th year at Sunrise. I have taught both Kindergarten and 1st grade; the last 5 years Kindergarten and 1st Grade Learning Academy. 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 21 years. We have a daughter Shelby who will be in her second year at Sante Fe College in Gainesville this year. We have two little furry four legged friends by the names of Boogie and Jalepeno. In my spare time I enjoy baking, college football, NCIS, and spending time with my family. During the school year I live off of Coke and Reeses. Keeping the lines of communication open is very important. You may contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org; by calling the school at 671-6200 between the hours of 7:10-7:30am or 2:15-3:00pm, or by sending in a note in your child's folder.
