About Jason

Jason Dorr

My name is Jason Dorr and for almost two decades I have been a member of the Hampden Academy faculty where I serve as a history instructor and a member of the Social Studies department.  Over this span, I have taught all grade levels and all required courses along with Advanced Placement European History, as well as organizing, facilitating, and advising students taking independent studies.  My educational background is a BA in history with a major in Canadian history and a BS in education with a major in social studies.  I have an MA in U.S. history.  My MA thesis focused on native peoples of the Northeast and their relationship with the State of Maine from 1820 to 1848.  I have and will always enjoy working with the students in the District.  They are the one component that truly makes my job a pleasurable and fulfilling experience.   In my free time, you will find me casting flies to hungry fish.
