About me

Welcome to 6th grade language arts!
Here is a little about me...

Welcome to Mrs. Doherty's Class!
graduated from the University of Texas Austin, and this will be my 17th year teaching.
My mom was a teacher for 25 years, and she lives in Kingsville, Texas, where I grew up. (We have a lot to talk about when we get together!)
I live in Round Rock with my twin daughters. My daughters, Rose & Anna, are juniors at Rouse High School. They both play the french horn and love everything about band!

In my free time, I enjoy running and reading. I've run 12 marathons including Pikes Peak, Big Sur, NYC and several Austin Marathons. 

I especially love young adult literature and collect books that are signed by the author. 

One of my favorite things to do is to meet authors when they come to Austin. I look forward to the Texas Book Festival each year, where I've met many authors such as Rick Riordon (Lightening Thief) Avi, Sharon Creech and many more! Many of my  books are signed by the authors who wrote them! Some of my favorite authors are Particia Polacco, Brian Selznick, Kate DiCamillo, Chris Van Allsburg, Avi, Deborah Wiles, Rick Riordan, Sharon Creech,...just to name a few! 

So if you're in my class, get ready to read some of the best books around!!!
