Patti Duncan


Howdy! My name is Patti Duncan and I am very excited to be blogging on the Science Blog. I am the newest member of the Discovery Education Science TECHBOOK Implementation team. I am really looking forward to my role as Manager of Instructional Implementation and everything that I will get to do with you in that role. Prior to this I was a Professional Development Specialist with the Discovery PD team for almost 4 years. Prior to that, I spent 13 years as a middle school and high school science teacher in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Prior to THAT I spent 9 years as a food chemist. Prior to THAT I was a crazy college/high school/elementary school kid.

My husband, four children and I live in North East PA. We have 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, 5 barn cats and a goldfish. We keep busy exploring many interests including, but not limited to, scouting, camping, geocaching, community theater, shopping and of course, eating!

My friends often tease me because I eat, sleep and breathe science. I can not wait to participate in all of the exciting things that we have planned (and not yet planned) for the upcoming months!
