    Teaching at Swatara, Doug is returning home, having attended Swatara himself for 7th through 9th grade. His mother, uncle, aunts, cousins and grandparents also attended Swatara! He fondly remembers playing guitar, trombone and singing in TSOS (The Sound of Swatara), playing in the band, singing in the choir, and singing and acting as the lead in the musical "45 Minutes from Broadway" when he was a 9th grader! He wishes all of his students the best of success!
