“I grew up in Sharps. After graduating college, I returned to the Northern Neck to spend my first year of teaching and coaching in Westmoreland County Public Schools. The next year, I went on to teach and coach in Richmond County Public Schools,” said Doranda Scott. Now, she has moved on to her next adventure: as the new principal at Essex Intermediate School in Essex County.
Scott says she is a proud graduate of the Rappahannock High School class of 2000. After graduation she attended Virginia State University, where she earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Public Administration. “I continued my education through the CSEEP Grant Program at Old Dominion University,” she said, “where I earned dual certification for teaching Special Education in the areas of Emotional Behavioral Disabilities and Specific Learning Disabilities.” She continued in professional development, with Reading First in Virginia at the University of Virginia. Then, she moved on to what she described as a partnership with the University of Richmond and Henrico County Public Schools, where she spent five years, and earned Highly Qualified status to teach Middle School Mathematics.
