Hello My Name Is...

Heather Doray

Doray

I was born and raised in Putnam County, West Virginia.  After graduating high school in 1991, I joined the United States Army as a Spanish Interrogator.  I completed basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina and attended the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center in Monterey, California. My AIT (or advanced individual training) followed at Fort Huachuca, Arizona and then my permanent duty station was at Fort Davis, Panama.  After serving my enlistment term, I then returned home and earned my Bachelor's of Arts in Education (Biology 9-12 and Spanish 5-8) from Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, graduating in 2 1/2 years and magma cum laud.  I have since earned my Master's in English Language Learners from Western Governors University based out of Salt Lake City, Utah.

I relocated to Beaufort more than twelve years ago and have made the lowcountry my forever home.  I have taught at Beaufort High School the entire 12 years and have taught a variety of subjects to include:  Physical Science, Environmental Studies, Earth Science, Spanish I, Spanish II, Biology, Biology II and Marine Science.  I have taught applied, college prep, and honors courses.  My biggest honor professionally came from being selected as 2010's BHS Teacher of the Year!
