Mr. Dougherty begins his eighth year at Archmere Academy with the 2013-14 school year.
Prior to his current tenure at Archmere, you could have found Mr. Dougherty teaching English in New Hampshire, or at Elmira College (where he earned his Master’s Degree), or in northern Pennsylvania (where he learned more about farming than he needed to know), or at The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.
Since the 2011-12 school year, Mr. Dougherty has also served as Director of Curriculum and Instruction handling student records, report cards and transcripts, scheduling, and more. He still continues to teach two sections of senior English each semester.
Mr. Dougherty’s involvement goes beyond curricular planning and teaching English. As Theater Manager, he oversees all events that take place in the school’s auditorium. For the first time in his eight years at Archmere, Mr. Dougherty will direct the 2014 winter musical.
