Welcome to my page!
Mr. J Wayne Duckworth
MHS Theatre Director
I have been a life long learner. My education began right here in Jefferson County at Adamsville Elementary, Dixie Junior High and then, I was a 1976 graduate of Minor High School. It has been a life-long dream to come back to Minor and teach. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Montevallo and attended Graduate School at the University of Alabama. I earned my Master's Degree from Concordia University.
I am in my 29th year as an educator and I love teaching as much now as the day I started. I have taught in the state of Alabama for my entire career. My teaching experience ranges from Pre-K through Community College; Theatre, Choral Music and Instrumental Music. In addition to teaching I have also served local churches as a Music Minister; I have also served in the position of Community Theatre Director in several locations, and have done private teaching in voice, piano and acting.
