Mrs. Jada Duffy
My story, like many of yours, has several twists and turns, but to be certain, the most significant part of it is that my family and I are back in Fairhope and that last year I began my second stint at Fairhope High School. This is my 14th year of teaching, not counting the year our first daughter surprised us and when in order to stay with her, I decided to cut a year short, which turned into 4 years at home, which included daughter #2.
I have a passion for teaching students to recognize that there is a whole other universe of thought and life experience beyond what they literally process. I've noticed across the years that once they tap into this abstract thinking process, all realms of possibility open up for their academic potential. This moment in which they shift their paradigm to see this world of thought makes my heart sing.
I currently teach Pre-AP English 9, also known as "The Front Lines," and I coordinate the campus Testing Center. It isn't lost on me how blessed I am to work in this building for this administration and alongside this faculty, all of us here for the limitless potential of these kiddos.
