Blessings, my name is Paul Duerr. I was born and raised in Lodi, California. I attended Lutheran elementary school through 5th grade and followed 5th grade with a Christian Middle School and Public High School.
I attended CSU Stanislaus where I received my BA in mathematics and then continued on to Concordia, Irvine, for my teaching credential. While I was at Concordia I had the opportunity to live in Fullerton and work in Yorba Linda. During this time I learned to greatly enjoy the area and am very excited to be back after experiencing some other areas of the country.
While in college I became fascinated in both Math and Science while also discovering the glory of God’s creation through each of those fields. I am excited about helping our students build a foundation in mathematics that will translate to understanding, not just replication, of the mathematics our students will experience at the high school level. In science I eagerly await training our students to look at creation and use the gift of observation and the scientific method to explain this creation; particularly how creation displays the work and glory of our Father in heaven.
I enjoy playing all sports but focused my practice and competitive participation in basketball. When I am not playing sports I enjoy watching Basketball and Football. I also enjoy camping in the Sierras, particularly spending time hiking and fishing in Yosemite, Mammoth and Bishop.
I am incredibly excited about this school year and seeing all the plans God has in store for the Hephatha family. God has richly blessed me in so many opportunities and I am very excited to share those blessings with my students.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to help you in any way I can.
