Question: What classes are you teaching this year?

Joshua Dobbs:  I will be teaching mostly seniors at Rock Ridge. Courses include Academic Government and AP/ DE Government.

Q: How long have you been teaching and, if applicable, where else have you taught?

JD: This is my fifth year teaching! I have taught at Spring Mills Middle and East Fairmont High both in West Virginia.

Q: What are you most excited about for this year? 

JD: Most excited about teaching government to a new group of students and becoming part of the Rock Ridge family.

Q: What do you like most about teaching? 

JD: It was a former president who coined the phrase “teachers are Nation Builders.” I take that title seriously. I use my content that I love teaching to help foster a learning environment for students in my classroom that will help build a better nation. We teach for the outcome not the income right? The most important office in America is the office of a citizen, it’s the job for the Government teacher to help build a better more informed citizenry.

JD: I love anything politics, traveling, giving my dog his best life.

JD: Fun fact is that I have never been on a cruise ship and I promised my grandma I would never go white water rafting.

Q: Is there anything else you would like your students to know about you? 

JD: I would like my students to know that the Pittsburgh Penguins are the best hockey team in the NHL and there is no discussion about it.
