Mrs. Sallie Durand

Hello Pirate Families,


My name is Sallie Durand. I am a married with two amazing children, ages 8 and 10. 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. This is my 5th 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!


In a classroom, communication between parents and teachers is very important. The quickest way to contact me is through email or Class Dojo. Class updates and important information will be sent through Class Dojo. Are you signed up?
