Greetings! Mrs. Dougherty is my name and learning is my game! I have been a lifelong lover of anything to do with school. Growing up I attended Immanuel Lutheran School in East Dundee. I continued my high school journey in the Dundee Community. My Immanuel roots, led me to many amazing opportunities in sports, academics, drama and many clubs and organizations throughout my life. I attended Eastern Illinois University and graduated with my Elementary Education degree. I went on to complete my Masters in Early Childhood Education Leadership and Advocacy. I also received my Colloquy and subsequent certification in Early Childhood. My learning never stops. I share that with my family, my students and their families. I can’t wait to share some learning and fun with you:)
