Ms. Duran
Elementary ELL

Hello! My name is Tara Duran, and I am very excited to be joining Clarke Community School District! I am thrilled to be an ELL teacher and softball coach, and I am looking forward to a year of learning, and adventures! 

I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado and I am the youngest of four children. I ventured to Iowa in 2011 and never looked back! I went to college at Upper Iowa University in Fayette where I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading, ELL, and Coaching. In addition to working towards my degree, I played softball at Upper Iowa. I am currently working towards my Masters of Education. 

My hobbies include traveling, reading, coaching softball, spending time with family and friends, working out, and watching sports. I am excited to see what this year has in store! Go Indians!
