My school address is:


     I have taught Middle School for fourteen years.   Many of the those years were in Franklin County, TN.  I am currently in my third year at CCMS.  GO RAIDERS!   I grew up in Tullahoma and have always considered Coffee County my home.  My husband and I have three grown children and several  grandchildren.  When not at school I like to read, play piano, walk the dogs, and spend time at home with my family.





Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

       My name is Helen Dougherty, and I am your student’s Eighth Grade English/Language Arts teacher this year.  I look forward to meeting this year’s wonderful class of students.   In order to promote a school/home partnership, CCMS uses Remind to communicate with you. I try to only send out pertinent information about upcoming assignments such as essay due dates, book report due dates, or upcoming quizzes and tests.   If you would like to join the classroom, log onto   Use the code ff9b84 and you can join the classroom.  You can access information using a computer or phone.  Simply follow the directions to choose your format.  

     A second way to keep up with classroom happenings is to look at your student's  Google Classroom account.   I will post a calendar there that tells about assignment dates.   Once your students joins the Google classroom, he or she can show you the calendar.  Thank you for all you do to support our school.



Helen Dougherty


Each year we read The Outsiders in class. Below you will find a link to a free online version of the book that you can use to study at home.
