Fifth Grade

Mrs. Abby Durrance is our 5th Grade teacher.

Meet Mrs. Durrance

After graduating from Emory University in 2004, I met my husband and relocated to Pensacola. My career as an educator began at the high school level; however, I was able to pursue a different path and taught at the middle school level for six years.

In 2011, I decided to stay at home and raise my three young children on a farm in Alabama where I was able enjoy gardening, homeschooling, and raising chickens.  As my children got older, my heart called me back to the classroom.  In 2016, I decided to return to the big city of Pensacola and stretch my creative muscles and began to teach elementary art.

This year, I decided it was time to get back to my roots.  I am beyond excited to take on the fabulous fifth graders at Pensacola Beach Elementary!  My goal is to not only facilitate learning but to also foster a sense of community and family within the classroom through cooperative learning as we prepare our children for the rigors of middle school.
