Ms. Deborah Vaughn: After being personally involved with the events of 9/11 in my former career, I wanted to do whatever I could to make the world a better place. That’s when I decided that teaching was the career that I could reach and make a difference in many young adults lives so they, in turn, could make a positive impact on the future for all of us.
TF: What was the most enriching class you got to teach throughout your career?
DV: I absolutely loved all of my classes, but if I had to choose one course that I truly loved, it would be AP Language and Composition. It was always like magic to watch students learn to specifically focus on empowering their “voices”, realizing the power of words, and using language in their writing and conversation to have those “voices” heard.
