TOWAMENCIN- Starting high school can be a nerve wracking experience for many sophomores at North Penn. Mrs. Donna Dome, the new assistant principal who is taking the place of Mrs. Judy Turner in the sophomore home office, hopes to make the experience as smooth and memorable as possible.
Before arriving at North Penn, Dome already had an extensive amount of experience and knowledge in teaching and educating children. As a teacher in the Souderton School District for eighteen years, Dome spent most of her time at Indian Valley middle school where she taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade mathematics. She eventually received her administrative certification and got a job at the Central Bucks School District where she was an assistant principal at Holicong Middle School for three and a half years before coming to North Penn.
At North Penn, Dome is excited to build relationships with the faculty and students as well as become acclimated to the school and the environment. Her main focus this year is to understand the atmosphere at North Penn and utilize that knowledge to have a fun, productive rest of the year.
“My goal at least for this year, to start, since it’s been half a year, is to build relationships with the faculty, the staff, and the students. I am excited to get to know the students, get to know the teachers, get to know the school, learn what makes North Penn tick. And I’m excited to be a part of it,” explained Dome.
Working in the sophomore home office, Dome strives to create a memorable high school experience for the class of 2019. She wants to know what they as a class want to be known for and what will make their time at North Penn unique.
“What does [the sophomore class] want their class to be remembered for? What makes the class of 2019 special? I want to know from the kids, ‘Hey can we do this? Or ‘How about this idea?’ What’s going to make them remembered for when they graduate in a couple years?” Dome asked.
Outside of school, Dome partakes in various hobbies such as biking, running, and reading. She also enjoys spending time with her friends and family, including her thirteen year old son and eleven year old daughter.
“I love being with my friends and my family. I like to be active with my family. We go to a lot of sporting events and my kids are very active so I take them a lot of places,” said Dome.
Dome is eager to jump into her role as assistant principal and be part of the North Penn community.
“I’m excited to be here and excited to be a part of the high school. I’m excited to work with high school students and hope to best support them however I can.”
