Recess Duty Episode 032 - Doreen Garrigan Recess Duty

    • Education

This week during Recess Duty, we talk with PYP Educator and Leader, Doreen Garrigan! We talk about leading change and how we can all be the change we want to see as well as her work during COVID-19 in Brazil and the ups and downs that led to her school submitting their PYP application.

Doreen Garrigan is the Lower School Principal at Escola Americana do Rio de Janeiro and has been at EARJ since July 2020. Before coming to Rio, Doreen served as Primary Principal at the Western International School of Shanghai (China). Prior to Shanghai, she spent 5 years as the IB Primary Years Programme Coordinator at the American International School of Bucharest (Romania). Doreen spent the majority of her classroom teaching experience back in the U.S. as a gifted education specialist, writing curricula for identified gifted students in the state of Virginia. Originally from the state of California, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies at California State University, Fresno, and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from George Washington University, in Washington D.C.  Doreen has been partnering with teachers, students, and parents for 30+ years and consider it a dream professional to ‘pay it forward’. Doreen is an American citizen and has two grown daughters who she enjoys watching navigate adulthood.  In her spare time, you can find Doreen exploring local highlights and enjoying bright sunny days at the beach. She is an avid dancer and loves a variety of music.
