About Me

Hello and Welcome to Sierra Duggan’s Blog! 

I am an aspiring teacher who has joined the blogging community to share ideas, exchange professional tips and techniques, and above all…LEARN how to be a successful educator! I am so excited to share my blog with everyone and I hope you enjoy! 


Here’s a little about me:

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I grew up loving the outdoors and spent a majority of my time at the beach, hiking, camping, and soaking up all the southern California sun I could get! Over time, I developed a deep appreciation for the environment and the need to preserve and protect everything our natural world has to offer. Therefore, I decided to attend Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and obtain a degree in Environmental Sciences.

Long story short, the environmental science  job I landed out of college wasn’t what I expected. Many of my previous jobs involved working with kids and I always found those experiences to be so enjoyable and rewarding. So…I thought, why don’t I combine my environmental science background AND my love for teaching? 

Alas, here I am. My goal is to obtain a teaching credential from Cal State University San Marcos, under their “Middle Level” education program. This way, I will possess a multi-subject credential and a single-subject science credential. I hope to teach 6th grade science in the near future and share my passion for the environment/earth science to all my students. I want to be a teacher that integrates real world issues with actionable steps to solutions. I want to inspire students everyday to show how they can make a positive difference in our world.

A Little extra…

This is my dog, Bear. He’s 12 years old but still acts like a puppy. He enjoys long walks on the beach, his tennis balls, and above all…his bean bag!


I LOVE to travel and explore new places, meet new people, and experience new cultures.


You can find me outdoors…I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, and camping!
