Mr. Minor is in his sixth year at Dulles High School and his ninth in education. He has been working in theatre since he was 13 but began entertaining the masses many years before that. After his first 3 years of teaching, he took a small break to work with Straight No Chaser and travel the continent as their lighting designer and technician. From this experience, he learned a wealth of knowledge about the landscape of theatre and technology around the country and beyond. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Houston in Technical Theatre and his Masters degree from Angelo State University in Education - Administration. Mr. Minor is also a proud graduate of the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. The education he received in high school is unlike any other school in the world! Blake is a proud father of two beautiful daughters, Avalynne (5) and Eleanor (1).
Mrs. Duga is a Fort Bend ISD native, having graduated from Kempner High School. She then attended Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Studies. After graduating, she spent several years working for Playmakers of Baton Rouge, a professional theatre for young audiences. She discovered her passion for teaching while working with Playmakers, and first joined the FBISD team at Missouri City MS and then on to Fort Settlement MS. This will be her first year at Dulles High School and she can not wait to see what this year has in store!
Outside of teaching, she likes to spend time with her husband, who teaches theatre at Garcia MS, and their two puppies, Winston and CeCe. They also like to play board games and catch up on their favorite TV shows. Whenever she gets the chance, she also enjoys going to see local theatre in Houston.
