Abigail Dougherty

Abigail Dougherty


NAME: Abigail Dougherty

JOB TITLE AND KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: Communication Skills Specialist at Ocean View Maritime Elementary


YEARS WITH NPS:  7


WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?  The most rewarding part of my job is the emphasis on student-centered decision making and the chance to deeply impact student learning.  I have the opportunity to work with a fantastic staff, a supportive administration, and motivated students. 


IF YOU COULD TELL THE WHOLE COMMUNITY ONE THING ABOUT NPS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?  I think the community would be amazed to see how the culture at each Norfolk School reflects the students and staff.  I’ve been lucky to work at three NPS elementary schools and have found them each to be unique in a special, memorable way.


WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR COWORKERS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Something unknown to my coworkers is my love for Jeopardy.  I grew up watching it during dinner with my family and now I DVR it when I’m not home to watch it live!


WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK YOU READ OR MOVIE YOU SAW, AND WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS?  The last book that I read was Orange is the New Black and I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoy memoirs.  It depicts a very interested account of a woman’s time spent in Federal Prison.


DID YOU ATTEND NORFOLK PUBLIC SCHOOLS? IF SO, WHICH ONES AND WHEN? DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN IN NPS? IF SO, WHAT ARE THEIR AGES, AND WHICH SCHOOLS DO THEY ATTEND?  I did not grow up in the Hampton Roads area and currently don’t have children.  However, I would not hesitate to send my future children to any of the 3 elementary schools where I have been lucky to work.

TITLE: Parent Liaison, Ingleside Elementary School

YEARS WITH NPS: 10 wonderful years

WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?

I enjoy planning events such as luncheons for grandparents, moms and dads, as well as Ingleside’s Annual Fun Day. These events allow me to build a bond between the parents/community and the school.

IF YOU COULD TELL THE WHOLE COMMUNITY ONE THING ABOUT NPS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I would tell the community that it is very important to support the vision and mission of Norfolk Public Schools because our students are our future.

WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR COWORKERS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?

My coworkers do not know that I had the exciting pleasure of climbing to the top of Dunes Fall in Jamaica last summer. Also, they may not know that I am currently attending Tidewater Community College and plan to attend Norfolk State University upon completion.

WHAT WAS A RECENT BOOK YOU READ OR MOVIE YOU SAW, AND WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS?

"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," and yes, I would highly recommend it to others. It was REALLY GOOD!

DID YOU ATTEND NORFOLK PUBLIC SCHOOLS?

No, but both of my children are graduates of Norfolk Public Schools. They graduated from Lake Taylor High School.

With their (community) assistance, every NPS goal can be reachable. We (NPS and the community) need the village to continue to help raise our children.

I am a perfectionist.

Seven Pounds, starring Will Smith.
