Hello! My name is Mrs. Van Duzer and this is my 8th year teaching! I am so excited about it! I am so blessed to work with so many amazing people here at White Oak. I love to find new ideas, collaborate, and become a better teacher everyday!
I went to Cardinal Ritter High School on the west side of Indianapolis. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish from Ball State University in 2010. I have a passion for speaking Spanish and becoming a fluent speaker. I taught in a bilingual classroom in El Paso, TX in the summer of 2009. What a great experience!
I worked in Hamilton Southeastern schools for two years teaching 2nd grade. I then got married to my husband, Zach, in July 2012 and moved to Avon. Zach is a middle school math teacher in Zionsville Schools. We have a baby boy named Elijah...we couldn't be happier!
I am very enthusiastic and excited about this school year, mostly because I have had many of these students before in kindergarten. I promise to engage, enrich, teach and love your children! J
