I had Mrs. Dougherty for 2 years and I have to say they were the best years of English class I had in high school. She is fun, interactive and gets the class going with the topic that they are discussing that day and she will always keep you entertained and on topic, its just too bad she had to be forcibly retired, westlake still sucks.
one of the sweetest, most helpful, genuine teachers westlake has ever had. so smart and resourceful, may seem a bit scattered only bc she has so much knowledge to share! love dottie and her kind heart
Dottie needs to collaberate with other teachers-Had to totally start from scratch after 11H for AP-Mrs. Cavalli was hard, but she really got us ready for college..
Great person. Will open your eyes to things you just can't get in other classes. You're lucky if you have her, so take full advantage.
Her class isn't easy...especially if you have her for 11H. However, she is one of the few teachers that really care about her students!
I think she's a great teacher its just that she likes to play little mind games. Frankly, half the time I love her and the other half I want to go off.
She is kinda nice, and she is actually competent (something most westlake teachers don't possess); but her class is insane! stay away from 11H!!
equal parts eccentric and obnoxious. Avoid her, you'll be better off
Mrs. Dougherty rocks my socks! I'm moderating next year!
