Phil Duck, MA, Teacher
hil has a Master’s Degree in Special Education from New Jersey City University. As an educator, Phil is inspired by the words of Nelson Mandela: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." He has taken this mantra to heart, doing his best to arm his students with the necessary knowledge to become productive members of society. Prior to coming to FRA, he worked for a number of years in the Fair Haven school district. He lives in Red Bank with his wife and two daughters. His mother and brother live three blocks away, which gives him a distinct advantage over his wife during arguments (her family is primarily in Kansas.) In his free time, Phil is either watching “The Walking Dead” with his girls, playing fantasy football and basketball, writing, or reading a hardboiled crime novel. His overloaded bookshelf at home is a testament to this last fact.
