Jessica Duncan is currently teaching music at Lynn Road Elementary in Raleigh, NC but when she was little she wanted to be a school bus driver. Her favorite children's book is Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. Jessica's 3rd grade teacher read it to her class and this book quickly became her book that made her love to read.
Jessica Duncan teaches music using the Orff-Schulwerk approach to music education. Orff-Schulwerk's purpose is to support and nurture children's creativity while building musicianship.
