Jared Doshier, Interim Director 
Director of Testing & Evaluation, Humanities Teacher  

Jared grew up in Southern California and has lived in the Rogue Valley since 1999. He is married to an amazing woman and has two incredible children. One unique thing about him is that he is unusually good at playing hacky-sack. He has been working with children in the classroom for the last 10 years, and has been a full-time teacher for the last 6 years.  This is Jared's second year at TVS, and the one thing that stands out to him is how independent the students become.  Students leave with the ability to master content in a college-ready manner.  

Corine E. Kaddouz comes to the Valley School with 40 years experience in the educational field in a number of capacities, including having successfully founded and ran Papillon Preschool in San Mateo California. While acting in the capacity of Director/Owner of Papillon Preschool, Corine had a long and fulfilling career which lasted twenty one years before finally selling her school and settling in Jacksonville. However, upon realizing she wasn’t quite ready to completely retire, she began volunteering on the board of TVS and soon thereafter started working for TVS as business administrator, then Grant Administrator, and now is the Executive Assistant.

Tracy grew up in beautiful Southern Oregon, she has worked with schools for the past 20 years. She has a certificate in medical office transcription and administration. Her strengths are organizational skills and creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. She is looking forward to being part of such a wonderful staff at TVS.

Mimi Davis, Lead Teacher

Director of Exploratory Studies, Occupations Teacher

Mimi is extremely excited to be joining TVS staff as she loves adventure and craves a challenge. Over the last year she has traveled the country exploring the West Coast and fell in love with the Rogue River Valley. Mimi grew up and raised her two amazing children on Chicago’s north side. As a young mom, she received her BA in Cultural Anthropology at NEIU and pursued her MA in Education at DePaul University.  In 2014, Mimi completed her National Board Certification in Social Sciences. Over the last 15 years, she has taught diverse populations of middle school learners, including struggling readers, special needs and refugees from around the globe. Doing so has allowed her to learn and grow as an educator and developed her commitment to learning and teaching about educational equity, in which all learners feel represented and accepted. In her free time, Mimi is always looking for the next traveling adventure, whether it’s to explore a different culture or arrive at the destination by a new mode of transportation.

Amy grew up in the Rogue Valley and received her Bachelor's degree in Science Education from Oregon State University. She relocated to Oklahoma where she enjoyed volunteering at a therapeutic horseback riding program during her free time. After having children, her family moved back to Southern Oregon and she received her Master's degree in Special Education from Southern Oregon University, with added endorsements as a Reading Specialist and TAG specialist. Learning about the Montessori method drove her desire to create a Montessori school for adolescence, which became The Valley School. She finds herself lucky to teach at this special school and is passionate about fostering a love of learning in children. On days off and summer, she enjoys playing family games, live musical events, playing and watching soccer and traveling with her family.

Erin Miller - Director of School Culture, E.L.A Teacher

Erin moved to the beautiful Rogue Valley about fifteen years ago from the bay area. Art has always been a major influence and passion of hers, so she pursued an art major and art history minor at UC Santa Cruz. She studied printmaking, photography, painting, sculpture, and welding. After graduating, she spent several years working and thinking about how to combine her skill-set in creativity with her desire to make a difference in her community. That led her to earn a Masters of Arts in Education. This is her seventh year teaching and she couldn't be happier to be spending it teaching Language Arts and Stage 1 Math at TVS. She attended a Montessori elementary school, so in a way, teaching at TVS feels like coming home. She loves the creativity, curiosity, and overall enthusiasm for the process of learning from the students and staff at TVS. When she's not teaching, she enjoys playing roller derby, camping with her family in "Poppy," their newly restored '73 VW camper van, or reading, writing, hiking, and drawing the day away!
