Help Us In Welcoming The Newest Educators At Cardinal Gibbons
Mrs. Doss – A New English Educator

Gibbons has introduced many new teachers into the school almost every year since opening its doors first in Western Blvd, and is now continuing to welcome more new teachers into the Gibbons community.

As we welcome these dedicated educators into our school community, we celebrate the diversity of knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm they bring to our school classrooms.

We at The Gibbons Globe interviewed our six new teachers this year so that students could learn more about their teachers’ hobbies, motivations, and teaching origins. After all, Gibbons isn’t just about integrating new faces into the school, it’s about fostering a culture of collaboration, learning, and a community of growth where both students and teachers thrive.
