Mr. Steve Duarte was a substitute teacher for two and a half  years before coming to Buhler as the debate and forensic coach. This is his first time being in his own classroom. He teaches all afternoon and he is also working on his Masters degree in Education.

He heard about Buhler High School from other teachers and he said he “liked the small community feel.”

“I inherited a group of talented students,” Duarte said about his experienced debaters.

Duarte’s work experience has been varied. He was once an EMT in California, worked on a dive boat, and was employed as the head custodian at Valley Center Middle School.  Outside of school he plays guitar and does some photography.
