Doblar has been an educator for 15 years and has taught at levels from kindergarten to college. He began as a long-term substitute teacher at the high school level and got his first full-time teaching job at the middle school level, according to a Gwinnett County Public Schools release. While earning his PhD in instructional technology at Indiana University, Doblar also worked as an instructor at the collegiate level, teaching education students.
Doblar returned to Gwinnett County schools as a technology coordinator after receiving his doctoral degree. In 2015, he began his current position at Head Elementary School, the school he attended as a child, the district said.
Engaging students in class is one of Doblar’s key goals, he said.
“It has been my experience that when learning isn’t genuinely engaging for students, they either ignore it or endure it,” Doblar said in a district release. “The single most inspiring difference in the teachers I admire is the engagement of their students— they love coming to school, never want to leave, and achieve beyond what they ever have as a result.”
