Mrs. Durfee's favorite EL Design Principle is “The Having of Wonderful Ideas”. She loves to celebrate and learn from the wonderful and creative ideas of children. She grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and has traveled outside of the US to Korea, England, France and Italy, and would love to visit Japan or Australia. She loves teaching second grade, reading, cooking, the smells of lavender and eucalyptus, and going on nature walks. Her all time favorite food is sushi, and her love for succulent gardens is very great. Mrs. Durfee graduated from Brigham Young University.
