About Mary Dominguez...
Position: English 9 & 12 Teacher
Welcome to my page! I am so excited to be teaching at Chandler High this year. I have been a CHS parent for a few years and love the school so much that I decided that I wanted to work here.
This year I am teaching English 9 and English 12 and look forward to guiding the freshmen students through their first year of high school and supporting seniors in their last year.
My Education and Professional Background
I have a bachelor's degree in English with a minor in history from Texas State University. I started my teaching career in Odessa, Texas, where I attended high school, and taught different history courses for 8 years at the junior high and high school level. I then moved to Colorado, where I taught high school social studies for 3 years. I have been teaching middle school and high school English at an online school for the past 10 years. Prior to that, I was able to stay home with my children for several years until they started school in CUSD.
I enjoyed my experience of teaching online and learned so much in those years, but am really happy to be back at a brick and mortar school and see my students and colleagues in-person.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every student can learn, but the learning happens in different ways for every child. It is my job to come up with ways to guide them to see their strengths so they can learn and have the opportunity to have more choices for their future.
