Ms Duenas holds a BS in Industrial Organizational Psychology and a Minor in Spanish as well as a teaching credential in Spanish. She has a passion for not only teaching Spanish but also for helping students make global connections. Ms Duenas believes that teaching at Summit will allow her to relive her experiences as a volunteer mentor combined with her joy for teaching! When she is not teaching at school, Ms. Duenas is teaching at home as the mommy of a 6 year old super hero! In her my time away from the classroom she loves spending time with family and friends and watching basketball- Go Warriors!
