Mr. Dougherty

Hi! My name is Mr. Dougherty and I am excited to be starting my 9th year of teaching, and my second year teaching at Rutherford Elementary School. Prior to Rutherford, I worked for 7 years in Alexandria, Virginia, where I taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade at a Dual Language elementary school (Spanish & English). Before that, I spent 5 years as a substitute teacher for Arlington Public Schools in Arlington, Virginia.  I am a graduate of the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!!!). In my spare time, I love reading, playing basketball, going on hikes with my fiancee, and watching the Bulldogs play on Saturdays. I am looking forward to an exciting and fun-filled school year!
