Degrees and Certifications:
I am Mrs. Dorward, your child's ELA teacher. I am anxious to meet all of you as we begin our adventures in Reading! In addition to teaching your child, I am also the anti-bully representative, the person in charge of emailing the nightly homework blast, and am the general point of contact on the Green Team. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me!
I have been at NMS since 2003 (not 1703 like Mr. Raymond may tell you), and have enjoyed every moment of it. Eighth grade was my favorite year in school, and it is my goal to make this year as educational, enjoyable, and memorable as it was for me! I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a family of teachers so I live and breathe this profession. I have always been an avid reader, and love any kind of story. It is my goal to help your child find something that they are passionate about reading!
