Durango 9-R Is fortunate to have employees who have been serving the district for more than 20 years. This week we want to recognize Tara Haller, who teaches mathematics and computer science at DHS. Tara has been with 9-R for 27 years!
Josephine Valencia has worked in the cleaning industry all of her life. For the past eight years she’s been with the Durango School District 9-R. She’s been the Custodian at Animas Valley Elementary School for five years.
We continually monitor our student and system results to ensure that we are on track to realize this mission. At 9-R, we believe every student deserves to have a solid academic foundation that opens the window of opportunity for any career in which they are interested. They also deserve to have experiences that help them understand their talents, interests, and possible future career options.
Steve Lee has been driving buses and trucks for a long time. What initially drew him to drive a school bus for the Durango School District 9-R was the hours and benefits. The shifts are typically two hours in the morning and three in the afternoon, which also happens to be enough to earn full benefits, and give him time to run his business during the day.
