Hello Duker Families!

 

Welcome to a new school year at Duker School! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer break spending time relaxing and taking adventures with friends and family.  

 

For the families that are new to Duker, I want you to know that you are coming to a wonderful place to learn and grow.  Duker has an incredible and caring staff and is the perfect place to be to do the best learning!  I am delighted that you will be a part of this amazing family of learning.  For those families that are returning to Duker, WELCOME BACK!  

 

As we embark on this journey together, I promise to students and parents that this year will be a year of rigorous, relevant and engaging work in our classrooms along with special events and activities.  I invite you to join us for these special events and activities.  Your involvement and support in your child’s education is priceless.  Remember, daily attendance is extremely important!  Students who are here every day will be SO much more successful in life!  

 

I would love to tell you a little more about myself.  I started my teaching career at Desert Ridge Elementary School in Arizona where I spent 3 years teaching kindergarten and 3rd grade.  I then moved back to Illinois and spent a year teaching 3rd grade at Dundee Highlands Elementary School.  I would finish my time in the classroom at North Elementary School, where I taught 5th grade for 10 years!  I ventured into the administrative role at Edgebrook Elementary School where I was an Assistant Principal for 8 years. This year will be my 3rd year as Principal at Duker School and my 25th year in education.  I feel so fortunate to be able to be in this role and work with all the amazing students, staff and families in McHenry.

 

This year I will be celebrating my 21st wedding anniversary!  I met my husband while getting my undergraduate degree at Purdue University.  We have 2 wonderful daughters, 16 and 12, who keep us busy with club volleyball and competitive cheer.  Even though we are always running around, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

 

Here’s to another fantastic year at Duker School and Welcome Back!! I look forward to seeing so many familiar faces in the classrooms and hallways and meeting all our new friends.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Lindsay Weber
