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 a variety of classes, normally Juniors and Seniors. I am really lucky to be able to teach several of the Dual Enrollment courses here at the high school. I did adjunct briefly and would love to do so again. I completed my MA in English by focusing on Gender Roles in Shakespeare. 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. I was also published in the book "75 Years of Dick Grayson" where I got to debate what made a Robin the best Robin. In case you're wondering, yes. I did see whatever comic book movie just came to mind. I 100% have thoughts on it. I would be delighted to share them with you. My classroom is often decked out with "nerd attire" -- Batman, Mando, Shaespeare, LOTR, etc. I was given a PTSA grant in 2020 for Graphic Novel Sharing shelves for staff and students and am pleased to be able to help show these amazing stories to new people. 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, and our tiny humans MacKenzie and Killian.
My room is a safe place.
