Caitlin Graham is welcomed to the Malden High School social studies department in the Pathways Program. Graham chose MHS because she said, “When meeting the staff and administration at MHS and seeing the dedication that they had to furthering students education in a positive way, [she] knew that MHS would be a great place to work.” Graham attended Johnson State College in Vermont for her undergraduate degree where she played the competitive sport of Rugby and also captained her dance team during both her junior and senior years, “Go Badgers!”
She also attended Cambridge College for her Masters in education, but she originally majored in outdoor adventure education yet switched her major her senior year to an education major with a minor in fine arts, which lead her to her teaching career. Graham previously taught at a Collaborative School in the South Shore and in addition she taught at a high school in Arlington and has taught English in the past, yet her passion is teaching history.
Graham wanted to become a teacher because she was raised by educators who put a large emphasis on education and the importance of everyone having a positive educational experience.
When asked about her feelings about MHS Graham responded that she has found MHS to be “a great school system to work within.”Although Graham supposes that every school has their challenges she remains optimistic and believes all challenges have their reward.
Graham thinks that the staff and students at MHS have been great since she began teaching and enjoys her time here. Like most Bostonians, Graham anticipates going to Red Sox games at Fenway and also likes to go antiquing, she enjoys shopping for things that resemble certain times in history. She collects different things like “sewing machines from the late 1800's to early 1900's, Native American wool blankets (pendleton) and memorabilia from the 1980's and early 1990's.”We are very happy to welcome Graham to the staff at MHS.
