Welcome to Mr. Dorman's 6th/8th Grade Social Studies and Introduction to Broadcast Media Homepage.
It's great to be back at such a wonderful school. This is my 20th year teaching, and I am planning on it being the best yet. I am proud to say that I attended Newport Elementary School, Horace Ensign Middle School, and Newport Harbor High as a young person and truly enjoyed the time I spent at each school. I continued my undergrad education at the University of Wisconsin and I received my teaching credential and Masters Degree in Curriculum and Leadership Development at National University in Costa Mesa.
I have a wonderful family and love to spend my free time with them. My beautiful wife and I will be celebrating our 13th anniversary in October. I also have two fantastic children; their names are Bella, who is 10 years old and is in 5nd grade, and Lexi, who is 8 and is in 3rd grade. This summer we spent most of our time in the pool, reading books, going out to dinner, and spending time at Disneyland. My hobbies include playing tennis, scuba diving, reading, and playing with my kids. I also work as a voice actor in commercials, cartoons and audio dramas.
Again, I am very happy to be teaching at Lathrop for my 14th year and can't wait to meet more great Spartans. Let's have a fantastic year.
