Today we're highlighting Upper School teacher Mitchell Dumke for Faculty Friday!
Before coming to The Vern, he taught at South Cobb High School after spending time in both outdoor education and as a general contractor. Currently, he is working towards finishing his Masters degree at Georgia State.
Outside of MV, he enjoys hiking, slacklining, and wandering around Atlanta with my precious Beagle, Penelope. He loves that this community is supportive and transparent, and feels that he is always able to find both encouragement and criticality in everything he does. Mitch loves hip-hop music and am a Subaru enthusiast. Welcome to Mount Vernon, Mitch! #bettertogether#madeinmv#mvpschool#FacultyFriday
Over the last year and a half, Upper School students, along with Marie Graham, have been developing a Virtual Reality program - The Island - to be used at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta during physical therapy. Yesterday, they visited CHOA and got to see their product in action! #mvpschool#madeinmv#bettertogether
Say hey to Lisa Bijit, Grade 8 Humanities Teacher. Before coming to MV, Lisa taught in the Cobb County School System for 16 years.
Apart from the camaraderie of the faculty, what she loves most about being a Mustang is the amount of time that is built into the schedule for movement. She also loves being at a school with strong athletic programs.
In her free time, Lisa loves going to concerts, hiking in the mountains, and going kayaking. We're so happy to have you at The Vern, Lisa! #mvpschool#bettertogether#madeinmv
Commemorating the Upper School’s 10 year anniversary, Mount Vernon kicked off the Alumni Council. Focusing on engaging former classmates through networking opportunities, events and initiatives, the council keeps Mustangs connected!
