Other Information

Jennifer Farnham, who joined the faculty in 1999, teaches first and second grade, and previously taught kindergarten. “I particularly love the primary years,” she says. “Children are still getting to know the world around them, and school is the perfect place to explore new people and ideas.” Ms. Dougherty holds a B.A. in speech and theater with an emphasis in communication from St. Olaf College and an M.A. in elementary education from the University of St. Thomas. She shares her love of theater with her students by organizing class plays. “Drama is an amazing experience for children,” she says. “Not only does it promote academic skills and creativity, it also requires that a group of children work together, support one another, and create something about which they all can be proud. And somehow, every time, it always comes together!” In her spare time, Ms. Dougherty enjoys knitting, baking, cooking, painting, and the outdoors.
