Ms. Dolman grew up in the neighboring town of Dartmouth and attended Dartmouth High. After high school, she attended Wheelock College in Boston; where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. Right after graduating from Wheelock, she decided she wanted to try the West coast for a bit and moved to sunny Los Angeles. There, Ms. Dolman completed her Master’s program at California State University Northridge, adopted two wonderful dogs, and began her teaching career. After five years, she decided the East Coast was the best coast and returned to the New Bedford area to be closer to family and continue her teaching career at Alma. Ms. Dolman is also a huge dog lover and currently has six dogs amongst her family…which she has lived with all under the same roof!
