Mrs. Sallie Durand

Hello Pirate Families,


My name is Sallie Durand. I am a married with two beautiful children, ages 5 and 7. After graduation from East Carolina University (GO pirates!), I taught in Greenville for 6 years. Starting a family of my own made me realize how much I longed to return to my hometown of Newport. While my children were young, I wanted to spend as much time with them as possible, so I substitute taught for 6 years in Carteret County. Last school year was my first year as a Swansboro Pirate and I am excited to start another year with my Pirate family. Empowering young minds to take ownership of their learning and reach their fullest potential is the reason I love teaching. And if I can do it while singing and having fun, well that is even better!


Please use the Remind Link next to the school phone number to signup for important class updates. This is the best way to contact me. Let's work together to make this a great year!
