Hello! My name is Michael Dugan. My undergraduate degree is from Manhattan College where I received a B.A. in Elementary Education with a New York State certification to teach grades 1 through 6. In addition, I completed another certification as a graduate student at Manhattan College where I graduated with an M.A. in School Counseling. I currently teach Social Studies at I.S. 254 in the Bronx. Specifically teaching General Education, English Language Learners, Special Education, and Honors classes at a sixth-grade level. In addition, I run individual/group counseling sessions as well as coach the 7th-grade MSQI debate team.
I have been able to work in many New York City Department of Education settings in elementary, middle, and high school levels. I have acquired skills through teaching and counseling to aid students in setting academic and social goals while creating lifelong learners. As an educator and counselor, I understand the importance of student-centered, collaborative learning and counseling when addressing the needs of every child. I want to both share my passion for teaching and counseling and take part in community service beyond the classroom if opportunities become available. My experiences in local and global educational systems have heightened my ability to adapt to different educational environments and diverse learners.

I've travled all over the world not only for personal reasons but to enhance my contributions to the classroom. I specifically choose to explore locations that I teach so my students can understand on an experiential level what its like to study Ancient History.
