Mrs. Regena Dossett

I teach AP Literature to seniors and pre-AP tenth grade English. My sponsorship responsibilities include Sponsoring the Sophomore Class. I have taught English since 2002, and I have been teaching at Foley High School since January 2012. I am also an AP reader for the AP Literature Exam, which allows me to gain a deeper understanding of the AP exam and more effectively assess my students' writing. In terms of my teaching philosophy, it is my belief that students can only learn when they are self-motivated, engaged, and challenged. Students who become immersed in a story and step out of the back end of a book having made a friend or two in the characters end up deeper thinkers in life, which is my goal as a teacher. On a personal note, when I am not grading essays, I love to write dark Southern fiction. I am married and have three amazing sons: Denton, Cooper, and Cullen.
