Mr. Terence Donohue
As the child of two teachers, one a high school English teacher, I have always regarded education as the family business. I have been teaching high school English since I graduated from college-- for 7 years at Mount Vernon High School in Fairfax County and for 10 years at Clarke County High School-- and after 17 joyful years, I now like to think of teaching as my calling. While I love the project of education in general, I especially thrill at the work of helping high school students to develop, through the exploration and production of relevant texts, the analytical tools that will enable them to engage the content of their worlds with critical agency. I am truly excited to join this community, to foster the development and exchange of ideas, and to be a part of this growing culture of learning.
