Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cara Donoghue

I have been a teacher at Monmouth Regional High School since 2011 (some of you may know me by my maiden name, MacNeil). I teach Junior CCR and Great Books Honors. Last year I completed my MA in English by focusing on Gender Roles in Shakespeare. I write book reviews for the California Journal of Women Writers which focus on memoir and science fiction representations by female authors. I have a published short story called "Academy Seven" and am pursuing additional creative writing publications while maintaining a steady relationship with my alma mater The College of New Jersey. 


As my teacher Twitter indicates I am a "teacher by day, Jedi by Knight" -- a full time academic and also full time nerd, I enjoy and utilize a lot of modern media in my English classrooms. When I am not teaching I like spending time with my husband, our dog, the naughty cat and our tiny human MacKenzie.
