About Carol Dougherty
In 2008 I started my journey here at St. Linus and have been loving every minute of it. I have spent my time teaching early childhood, specifically preschool the last few years. My love of reading is what led me to get my Master's Degree in Reading and Reading Specialist certificate. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and baking.
