Hi! My name is Kira Durant and I have three jobs here at Del Mar. I teach History of the Americas (Year 2) as well as Government & Economics, I am a co-facilitator of the Generation YES class, and I am also the instructional technology coach. I graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in History of Art and Visual Culture and received my credential from San Jose State University. I have been a proud Don since 2013!
Outside of school, I spend most of my time with my young son and husband in the Santa Cruz mountains and when I'm not with them you can find me listening to podcasts.
I became a teacher because I want to be a part of something bigger than myself, I believe that education is the path to solving nearly every problem.
