Leonard Duncan was a teacher for grades 2,3,5,6,7 and 8 in Los Angeles for 37 years. He holds a Master's Degree in Education from Pepperdine University. As an educator, Mr. Duncan taught hundreds of students how to read including his five daughters. He did this by adding the technique of phonics to the sight reading method being used at the time, introduced his list of essential words necessary for reading at any level, and he put an emphasis on spelling, grammar and vocabulary building through his Greek Roots book series. Over the years, he has received many thanks from students and parents for his dedication to teaching. Today, Mr. Duncan enjoys his time working on his books and spending time with his family and friends.
