Wise Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School
  • Hello!  My name is Patricia Duck.  As principal of Wise Elementary Fine Arts Magnet School, it is my privilege to welcome you our website and share information about our amazing school.

    I have been involved in elementary education for 25 years, serving as a teacher for over 16 years, but also as an instructional coach, university instructor and supervisor of preservice teachers, as assistant principal and finally principal.

    I have been married to my husband Wade for 36 years.  We have two sons, Cory and Jonathan.  My son Cory and his wife Rachel have blessed us with three beautiful grandchildren, Jackson, Mackenzie and Easton.  If you want to see my face light up, then let's talk about them.

    There is something absolutely wonderful about spending your day on an elementary campus.  Where else can you get hundreds of hugs at the front door every morning, huge toothless smiles, precious notes, endless enthusiasm, and enough energy to change the world?

    I am honored to serve as the principal of this great school.  It is a privilege to be a part of a community of administrators, teachers, parents, and students who work together in positive ways every day to make sure that our students are successful.

    Please take a moment to browse through our website and enjoy!  Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.  You may e-mail me at duckp@chapelhillisd.org or call at 903-566-2271.
