      Tamara Gurnell is an Industrial Education teacher at Duncanville High School.  Her passion for teaching our kids is immediately evident.  She loves the campus and what it exists to do: inspire our kids to be better in academics and extra-curricular activities. She embodies the spirit of educators and works to keep the culture and climate as positive as possible for students, faculty and staff. She goes above and beyond by helping at the district level also.  She and her students built the giant Duncanville letters used at Convocation and the Employee Appreciation. They also built an amazing float for the Christmas parade.  For her innovation and inspiration, Ms. Gurnell is the “Made With Pride in Duncanville – Teacher of the Month.”     



      Lorrie Goodnight is a help desk technician at the Idea Hub. She is a very patient and conscientious member of the Technology team. She goes out of her way to make sure that assigned issues are resolved in a prompt, professional manner, and always maintains a cheerful and positive outlook with the many staff members that she assists. She makes technology problems "go away," and is a great asset to the Duncanville ISD team. For her positive attitude and excellent customer service, Lorrie Goodnight is the Made With Pride in Duncanville – “Staff member of the Month.”
