Hello, and welcome to 2nd grade! I’m Mrs. Dougherty and I’m so excited to jump into my second year teaching at CMIT! I was born in Washington, D.C., but grew up and currently live just outside of Baltimore. My wonderful family consists of my daughter, Addalyn (8 years old), and my husband, Drue. During college, I worked as a Veterinary Technician and have a passion for helping animals.
