Elizabeth Mulcahy

Elizabeth Mulcahy (M.T. ’06 Soc Studies Ed) , a social studies teacher at Western Albemarle High School, was featured in the Charlottesville Tomorrow’s Meet Your Educator series: “The most challenging aspect of my job is having to wear so many different hats. In one day I may talk about Alexander the Great, Napoleon and Abraham Lincoln as an instructor, tutor a student on essay writing, plan a collaborative project with a colleague, supervise fundraising as a faculty sponsor, write a college recommendation, or create a professional presentation on education. This is outside the normal lesson planning, grading, parent communication, and meetings. I find it very rewarding to meet and work with so many people from teenagers to adults, but keeping all the roles organized is a challenge.” Read more about Elizabeth.
