Hello, my name is Laurie Dougherty. This is my fourth year at Seaside Heights. However, I have taught at both Gearhart and Cannon Beach Elementary Schools previously. I love teaching fifth grade and look forward to seeing my students every day They always make me smile!

My husband and I have two children and we love to spend time together as a family. We also have a puppy named Zoey. She is fun and full of energy. When I am not chasing her around the yard, I like to run, hike, read, or garden. I also love to travel and have been on some exciting adventures with my husband.
