Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Doherty

Hi!  I am very excited to be at Yates Mill.  I grew up on the coast of North Carolina in Morehead City.  After graduation, I attended Meredith College and earned a BA in Mathematics and an Elementary Education Certification.  I have taught in Wake county for my entire teaching career.  Before our second daughter was born I taught in first grade or K/1 multiage classrooms.  After our son started school, I returned to teaching part-time at Yates Mill as an Intervention Teacher. Now, I am very lucky to be part of  an amazing kindergarten team!

I live in Raleigh with my husband Tom and our 3 kids.  Sarah Kate is a Freshman at UNC Chapel Hill.   Amanda is a 9th grader at Middle Creek High School  and Jake is an 8th grader at Dillard Drive Middle School.  All 3 of our kids spent their elementary years at Yates Mill.

Our family also includes two spoiled Dobermen, a rabbit, 2 turtles, and 3 hermit crabs.

When I am not at school, you can find us watching Amanda play soccer or watching Jake wrestle or play baseball. Sarah Kate is a musician and we are frequently at open mic nights around the triangle.  Our family also enjoys 4 wheeling, boating, and attending classic car shows and cruise-ins. 

I feel very privileged to spend the day with your children.  Kindergarten is full of so many firsts and can be a magical time.  It is amazing watching the social, emotional and academic growth of our students and helping them become positive members of our community.
