Welcome to Ms. Dorman's class!

The 20-21 school year is my fourth year as an ESL teacher at JHS, and I love it here. Go Govies! I know each and every student brings unique gifts to the world, and that you can all accomplish amazing things with hard work and a strong community. Even though things are different with online learning, I can't wait to get to know all my new students! And of course, I'm so excited to see my returning students again! 

If you are in 9th or 10th grade, I might be one of your teachers in English class. You might also have English Language Development class with me. For information about what is happening in class, look at the class Schoology page.

Welcome, parents! 

I am an ESL teacher at Johnson High School, and I currently teach in the English Department. I might be collaborating with an English teacher in your child's English 9 or English 10 class. My job is to make sure students of all language backgrounds can be successful in the class. Some students in these classes speak English fluently, including native speakers. Other students in the class are still working on English. Having an ESL co-teacher will give all the students more support. The material we cover and the difficulty of the course are the same as classes without an ESL co-teacher.

I might also teach your child in English Language Development class. This class gives extra instruction on the English language to help multilingual students meet the expectations of scholarly language in the English class and throughout the day.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. The best way to reach me during distance learning is by email at
