Welcome to Dominican University of California Massachusetts Region!

My name is Kathy Murphy and I am delighted to be your Dominican University Associate. I recently retired from Boston Public Schools where I worked as a classroom teacher and literacy coach in elementary and middle schools. In my fifth year of facilitating the summer curriculum course, I have witnessed outstanding work developed by teachers and heard from them repeatedly how helpful this course is to their professional practice.

This year brings new opportunities for online collaboration and sharing of ideas and resources. Dominican University has earned a strong reputation for developing outstanding new teachers for many years. Now in partnership with Educational Development and Services, this reputation will expand to the professional development and continuing education of veteran teachers. I think you will find the course style refreshingly relevant and practical, as each course is designed to acknowledge the hard work that teachers do as they strive to maintain excellence, expand their knowledge, and improve teaching and learning. If you have any questions about the course offerings, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to working with you!
