Marcelle Doheny

Marcelle Doheny has taught history at Andover for 30 years. She has enjoyed each and every year because she has had the opportunity to teach the extraordinary students at Phillips. She has spent many years teaching interdisciplinary classes for seniors with teachers in the music and biology departments. She has a particular interest in Native American History and has collaborated with educators at the Peabody Institute since she arrived on campus. “It is really fulfilling to be able to write elective courses for seniors”, she says, “ but I also love teaching the ninth graders and the one-year international seniors.” She has been involved in writing the curricula for ninth graders since the department began teaching them in the early ‘90s, and was course head for History 100 for several years. The international seniors are also very special to her. The classroom is where she feels she belongs. After 16 years running dormitories, she now enjoys working with local families as a day student adviser.
