Damascus Middle School recently selected Ms. Carolyn Foster-Doss as the 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year!  Ms. Foster-Doss has been teaching for 31 years at both the high school and middle school levels, including Johnson County High School, Abingdon High School, Patrick Henry High School, Glade Spring Middle School, and Damascus Middle School.  She has coached basketball, volleyball, and track during her tenure, and she continues to support her current and former students at athletic competitions throughout the school year.  DMS is blessed to have had Ms. Foster-Doss as our World Geography teacher for almost four years, as she truly enjoys helping students learn about other countries, cultures, and people.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Ms. Foster-Doss states, “As a teacher, I hope people will remember me not only as a person who developed well-rounded students, but also as a person who helped the students make an impact in the community, made the community an overall better place to live, and really helped develop young men and women that I have had the privilege to work with [into people who] hold respectable morals and values.”  Ms. Foster-Doss definitely makes Damascus Middle School a better place to work, for both her students and her colleagues!
