Michelle Doherty

Michelle Doherty is the Education Coordinator at the Old Barracks Museum. Michelle came to the Old Barracks with degrees from Rider University in English Literature and Music as well as graduate studies at Fordham University in eighteenth century and Medieval Literature. Beginning her tenure at the museum as an interpreter, she learned the educational interpretation firsthand and brought previous classroom experience to the job as she developed programming for school tours and Colonial Summer Camp. In 2018, Michelle took over the scheduling of school tours and continued development of educational programs communicating with teachers and educators while researching the core curriculum standards in NJ. Currently, Michelle is developing methods of virtual education that utilize communication platforms common to classrooms and creating new programs to connect interpreters to students and visitors and continue the Old Barracks Museum’s mission both virtually and in person.
