About Ms. Doane! 

Hello!  I'm Ms. Doane and I am SO excited to be on the RAMS First Grade team again! This year is especially exciting as it is is my first year serving as Grade Level Chair.  More importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher!!  It's going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and new adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us.  I want to know ALL about you, but for now here are some things about me!

I grew up in Houston, Texas and I'm the oldest of two.  I have a brother, Paul, who is two years younger than me!  After high school, I attended Roanoke College (Go Maroons!) and graduated in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I am certified in education for PreK through 8th grade.

I have been teaching for over 20 years!! Including Kindergarten, 1st grade and 4th grade here at RAMS, I have previously taught a variety of grade levels at Monterey and Westside Elementary Schools. I also taught third grade at an elementary school in Texas for a couple of years. I'm so excited to teach first grade because I know exactly where you're coming from and exactly where you need to go!  Having experience in the upper grade levels will really help me challenge you to reach for the stars this year!!

I am the mother of four children: Chelsea (29),Sarah (27), Kyle (25), and Gracie (19). Although they are adults, they still keep me busy and on my toes! I also have three dogs, Maya, Maggie, and Scooter! They are the biggest sweethearts with an unending supply of energy. When I’m not at school, I enjoy reading, swimming, walking my dogs, traveling to the beach and other fun places, watching sports and rooting for the Dallas Cowboys, WAHOOS, and Florida Tech Panthers (where my daughter Gracie currently plays basketball!), as well as spending time with my wonderful friends and family.

Here I am with my kids and Mom last Mother’s Day
