Meet Mrs. Duerr


Drama and communications teacher Kristin Duerr believes that as she prepares students for the stage, she's really nurturing maturity and readiness for college and beyond.  Mrs. Duerr shares her passion for the creative process by directing Fine Arts Night and the spring musical, as well as collaborating on the Honor Code and Heritage Week. Her drama students will reap the benefits of Mrs. Duerr’s most recent professional development: Center Theatre Group (CTG) Virtual Arts Integration Symposium plus a 10-week workshop on improv games led by Aretha Sills, granddaughter of Viola Spolin, mother of Improvisational Theater. A girls-school graduate and 30-year veteran of both the stage and the classroom, Mrs. Duerr has earned acclaim for her 10+-year run in the play, "Late Night Catechism" nationwide.  When off the stage, you'll find her hanging out with her daughter in San Francisco or watching her 2 sons surf, skateboard or just making her laugh!

Teacher, Drama and Communications


I help students find their voice through theatre. The classroom becomes a studio where students discover connections to their culture using the dramatic narrative.
