Mr. Gil Dobbs

I was raised in the military, so I had the opportunity to "see the world." The places I've been and the people I've met have certainly made for a fuller heart... people of whom when I reminisce my heart wells up with gratitude and joy... the kinds of people who I will always carry with me and to whom I will always be indebted. In a sense, a little bit of each of them is who I AM. 

I gravitated to the familiarity of military life and enlisted in the US Army directly after high school with stints at the home of the infantry--Fort Benning, GA; the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, CA; and the 2nd Infantry Division in the Republic of Korea just to name a few of my favorite active duty stations. My college education was taken in steps: Associate in Liberal Arts, Bachelor in Language Arts, Master in TESOL, and a certification in Educational Leadership. Of all my blessings, there is none I cherish more than my wife Amy and my three boys--Ean, Asa, and Sam. 

I am a member of American Legion Post 229 in Madison.

This is my 22nd year teaching for Athens City Schools.  I began at the high school teaching 9th-10th grade ELA, ESL, and head coaching Girls' Varsity soccer and Varsity volleyball.  This will be my fourth year at AMS and will be teaching ELA, ESL, Math (Co-teach), and coaching AHS and AMS Boys' Soccer.
