Mrs. Alyson Doherty

New Milford has always been my home. I had the privilege of growing up here and graduating from New Milford High School. Giving back to the community has always been a passion of mine and I can find no better way to give back than teaching the children of New Milford at David E. Owens Middle School. 

After graduating from Monmouth University with a BA in English and Secondary Education, as well as an Endorsement in Special Education, I taught English in Bergenfield for one year before coming home to DEO. I am in my fifth year teaching in the English/Language Arts and Special Education Department, grades 6 to 8, at DEO. In addition to teaching in the middle school, I am the Varsity Softball and Freshman Volleyball Coach at New Milford High School and have obtained a Master's Degree in Educational Technology.  

My goal as both a teacher and a coach is to provide my students with an environment that facilitates learning and a climate that encourages positive social interaction, confidence, and self-motivation.
