Humanities Teachers

Brenda Dolan

My life as a military daughter came to an abrupt halt, when at the age of seven, my father, a Captain and pilot in the Marines, tragically died in a plane accident.  My mom sister and I were living in Tustin, California, at the time.  I attended, and graduated from Tustin High school.  After high school, I attended Orange Coast College where I received an AA in Home Economics.  I moved to San Diego County with my first husband, built a close-knit family of two girls and a boy, and worked part time.  I frequently helped in my own kid’s classrooms, discovered the enjoyment of working with children, and felt like teaching would be a good career match for me.  I received my BA and earned my teaching credential at CSUSM.  My first year teaching was here, at Lincoln.  I left for five years to work at CBA, returned home to Lincoln, and have been here ever since.  For the last eleven years, along with my duties as an English, history, humanities teacher, I have taken on the responsibilities of ASB Advisor.  In this aspect of my profession, I have the opportunity to interact with students of all grade levels and interests, which I truly love.  



Jeanne Minnick



My name is Jeanne Minnick. I was born in California, but grew up in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico.  I attended college in San Diego and Chico.  I have been a teacher since 1984.  Over the years, I have taught grades K-8, and have worked at     San Rafael, Christa McAuliffe, Ivey Ranch, and Lincoln.  I’ve been married for 33 years and have an amazing son.  When I’m not working, you will find me at the beach, listening to music, hanging out with my family, playing with my dog, or vacationing in Yosemite, Arizona, or New Mexico.

If you were to ask me 20 years ago: where will you be in 20 years?  I would tell you right here, teaching! 
I’ve known I wanted to be a teacher my entire life.  I was the kid who lined up her dolls, stuffed animals, Barbie’s, etc. on the floor and “took attendance”, “lunch count,” and had daily lessons. I know that I’m here for a reason and I am my student’s biggest fan!  I believe that my kids will change the world someday.  I teach them to love one another, the community, and most importantly themselves!  “If you can be anything in the world, be kind” is my motto.  They know that in my room every mistake is just a lesson and we get stronger as a team.  When I’m not in my classroom, you can find me either traveling somewhere new, the beach, or with my family. Lincoln is a great place and I’m so blessed to be a part of it! 



Lori Doron

Hello, I'm Lori Doron, and this is my first year teaching Humanities 7 at Lincoln and I’m happy to be here! I was born and raised in New York, and relocated on the island of Oahu,HI, and lived there for six years... which I absolutely loved!

My professional career includes teaching grades 5-8, in both public and private schools. I received my B.S. at S.U.N.Y Plattsburgh (N.Y.) in education with a minor in child psychology. I hold a Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Hawaii @ Manoa. I have teaching credentials in N.Y. HI, and CA.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family.  Running, cooking, and yoga are a few of my hobbies. I am also very busy with my own son and daughter, 18 yr. old twins who began college in the fall off 2017.

I love being a middle school teacher. Getting to spend time with students at this point in their lives fills is absolutely the best. After graduating from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor's Degree in English Education, I decided to continue with school to earn a teaching credential. I taught at a middle school in San Francisco for a couple of years and pursued my Master's Degree in Secondary Education. I moved down to San Diego to be closer to family and have loved every moment of my life back here in Southern California. When I am not at school, I am probably hiking around with my dog or reading. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Lincoln community.
