    Mrs. Dobbs is in her 18th year of teaching high school English, and she has been at Heritage High School since it opened in 2002.  She currently teaches 9th grade Honors English & 11th grade Academic English, though she has previously taught 10th and 12th grade English as well.  Mrs. Dobbs is a graduate of the College of William & Mary, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in English and Secondary Education.  In May 2006, Mrs. Dobbs earned her Masters of Education with an emphasis on the Integration of Technology in Schools from George Mason University.  She is currently taking graduate courses at George Washington University as part of the TESOL Certificate Program to Improve Instruction for English Learners.  In addition to teaching, Mrs. Dobbs is the co-sponsor of the HHS Student Council Association (SCA).  She has also previously coached several sports at Heritage (including Girls Soccer, Cross Country, Volleyball, Cheer, Girls Tennis, & Boys Lacrosse), though she has now taken a break from coaching.  As a graduate of Loudoun County Public Schools (Broad Run High School), Mrs. Dobbs is pleased to be back in the area teaching!   
    Mrs. Dobbs loves sports!  Her dad is a graduate of the Naval Academy, so Mrs. Dobbs roots for any Navy team (particularly Navy Cross Country and Navy Men's Lacrosse).  Additionally, she enjoys watching volleyball, baseball, and rugby (Go New Zealand All Blacks!).  While in college, Mrs. Dobbs was on the William & Mary Crew Team (Rowing), so she loves the water and attends regattas as often as she can.  Aside from sports, Mrs. Dobbs also enjoys hiking and traveling.  Favorite countries visited include Poland, Ireland, New Zealand, Peru, Turkey, and Thailand.  And, of course, as an English teacher, Mrs. Dobbs loves reading.  Be sure to tell her about any good books you read!
