Mrs. Suzan Levins

My name is Suzan Levins and I have been teaching for 16 years, all in Duncanville ISD. Here is a little information about myself. I attended Duncanville schools from 4th-12th grade and am a proud DHS graduate.

I attended Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas for four years and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Home Economics - Emphasis in Interior Design. I also spent a semester at Harding University in Florence, Italy and traveled to many locations in Europe. Through Harding, I was also able to travel for 6 weeks in Australia.

I worked in the design industry for several years before following my heart to education. I attended Texas A&M Commerce to further my education and receive my teacher certification. I enjoy being part of a profession responsible for building, along with family support, the foundation of a life-long learner.
