• About Mrs. Dukes

  • Hello, my name is Mrs. Dukes, and I am excited to work with our students at RISE Community School, #106. Becoming a school counselor was my second career; I previously worked as a Telecommunication Engineer before deciding to serve our community in public education. I returned to college and attended SUNY Brockport, where I obtained a master's degree in Counseling Education. I completed my internship at Edison Tech during the 2021-2022 school year. The 2022-2023 school year was my first year at RISE, and I absolutely love working with each student and family.



  • I have been married for 34 years and have 2 married sons and 7 grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, gardening, dance and cooking. I also play softball and volleyball as often as possible.  Four of our grandchildren are pictured below, this was our last family trip from 2015.
