    Hello! I am an Intensive Needs teacher in grades 7-12 with students who strive to show SWAG (Success,  Willpower, Attitude, and Goals).  I have worked in education for 18 years.  I love my students and expect nothing but excellence from them.  My passion for Special Education stemmed from retired Duplin County EC teachers who loved teaching.  I am a member of Mount Zion Holy Church, Warsaw.  My favorite color is red.  To release stress, I like to window shop at any store, at any time, whether brick and mortar or online.  I crave chocolate, cakes, and chips.  
    Please note that Mr. Roman and I are here remotely to help you because we love you.  Please browse the USEFUL LINKS to find free learning opportunities for grades 7-12. If you have any questions and/or concerns please email me at the above addresss.  Check out North Duplin Jr/Sr High School Digital Newsletter under the USEFUL LINKS tab or press

    The attached website is helpful for students withl disabilities.  It is shown best in the Google Chrome browser -   
    Also, Ms. Kim Wolfe, our STEM teacher has provided a wonderful NC Science Festival Activities website for review:
    We want you to be healthy and safe during the Coronavirus pandemic.  We miss you but most of all we love you.
     Everyday is a learning experience.  My best practice comes from the students and my colleagues.  Having the opportunity to  work with Mr. Rafael Roman is a blessing.   Mr. Roman, EC teacher assistant, earned an Associate degree in Science from Mount Olive College.  Mr. Roman is a graduate of North Duplin and has been in education for 35 years.  His love for trivia facts makes him an expert on global issues.  His most recent trips have been to the Galapagos Islands and Costa Rica.  He has been a dedicated school bus driver for 37 years.  Mr. Roman is a faithful member of Faison United Methodist Church, Faison.  He is a phenomenal teacher and a strong disciplinarian.
