Hey there. My name is G. Doug Dickens. I'm currently teaching 9th grade AVID, English Enrichment, and English Language Development. I attended Ouachita Baptist University, where I majored in English and minored in International Studies. I spent one semester attending Salzburg College in Salzburg, Austria to study and practice German. From 1999 to 2000, I attended Northern Arizona University, where I earned my MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have taught middle school, high school, and community college English Language classes, and I've worked in Texas, New York, Oakland, Washington, DC, and now San Jose.
Outside of school, I love to write music and repair electric guitars from Japan. I also enjoy traveling and long hikes with my wife.
