City Charter High School/Pittsburgh
Deborah Domingues-Murphy is originally from Southern California but currently lives in Pittsburgh. After her children left for college, she went back to school for a teaching degree. She is certified as both a business and technology teacher and as a library media specialist. She is in her 15th year of teaching at City Charter High School, an urban high school located in downtown Pittsburgh. She loops with her students, starting in ninth grade and continuing until they graduate. Although she is a librarian, there is no official school library. Debbie teaches a four-year information literacy curriculum that culminates in a graduation project. During that time, students are taught how to use informational sources, evaluate sources for reliability, write academic literature reviews, apply their research to a community project, and present their findings to a panel of community members. She also is a coach and mentor for the Robotics/STEM club. When not teaching, Debbie likes to travel, read, and cook.
