Erin E. Doran
2nd Grade Teacher
Welcome to second grade! My name is Erin Doran, and I will be your child’s second grade teacher. I love being a part of the faculty here at University School. I am eager and excited to meet you and your children and look forward to partnering and working together this school year!
Professionally, I received my education training from The University of Tennessee in Knoxville. I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Education, and most recently my Education Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision. I have certifications in early childhood education, urban/multicultural studies, early childhood special education, and school administration. Currently, I am pursuing my doctorate in school leadership at ETSU. I hope to finish my dissertation this school year.
This will begin my 22nd year as an educator! My experience prior to University School includes teaching third grade and serving as a Curriculum and Instruction Facilitator with the Knox County School System. I also spent time as an administrative intern while working on my Education Specialist degree. I look forward to my thirteenth year here at University School.
My family includes my husband Josh, a thirteen year old son named Finley, and a ten year old son named Archer. My husband attended ETSU, and spent some time as the mascot “Bucky!” As a family, we love to spend time outdoors, swimming, going to the movies, shopping at Target, and traveling!
I am thrilled to be teaching second grade, and know that it will be a successful year. I have been busy planning an engaging, challenging, and exciting curriculum for the upcoming school year. Our lessons will be based on the Tennessee Academic State Standards. I look forward to getting to know you and your child as the year progresses. I believe communication is a critical part of your child’s learning. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Bloomz. If your child has any allergies, special medical needs, or anything else I need to be aware of in order to ensure their health and safety, please let me know on the contact form.
The school supply list, student information form, Donors Choose project link, and Bloomz information are linked below. Donors Choose is a website that allows teachers to write grants for needed items in the classroom. I have several projects posted, but am most excited about the MakerSpace project. Donors Choose has already funded new stools, a reading carpet, and learning games to use in our classroom next school year!
