There’s nowhere else I would rather be.” Senor Duea holds a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and French K-12 education from the University of Central Oklahoma and is pursuing a Master’s degree in K-12 Reading through the University of St. Thomas. He has lived in Japan and taught at middle and high schools near Oklahoma City and Northeast Minneapolis.
