In order to share more of our amazing community here at SD, we offer this weekly #FacesOfSD to give you a chance to learn more about our faculty and staff. Today we are thrilled to introduce, Doris Brown, Upper School Science and Technology Teacher.
Q. Full name?
Doris Anita Brown
Q. Where were you born?
I am a 5th generation Houstonian (Houston, Texas).
Q. Favorite word?
Creating - I believe that creating gives one joy and purpose, whether it be creating a cake, a poem, a painting, an app, a robot, a cure for cancer, or even lesson plans!
Q. What do you do here at San Domenico? And what is your favorite part of your job?
I teach science in the upper school. My background is in molecular genetics, so teaching AP Biology is a good fit for me. I also teach Conceptual Physics, the backbone of all fields of science.
My favorite part of the job is interacting with my students, especially during laboratory activities. Helping my students learn scientific concepts and skills through team work when performing labs is fun and exciting!
Q. Which Dominican value inspires you the most this week and why? (Study, Reflection, Community, or Service)
Community - Working at San Domenico is like working within a large, caring and busy family. Faculty, staff, administrators and students demonstrate daily their dedication to each other and to their work. Due to each person's contributions as well as the school providing many opportunities for individual growth, we are joined together with a strong sense of community.
Q. What is your ideal weekend?
My ideal weekend includes talking with family members in Texas, New York and Oregon, walking in Golden Gate Park, reading a book, and visiting a museum or attending an arts performance with friends.
Doris, on behalf of every visitor who leaves your classroom in awe, and every student who graduates from your class all the wiser, thank you for all you do for our SD community!
