Mrs. Doris Day started her teaching career in 
1997 in the Gadsden City School system at 
Mitchell and other elementary schools teaching 
strings and chorus.  After 6 years, she moved 
to Etowah Middle and High to teach choir, drama, 
and music appreciation for 14 years. Returning 
to Gadsden City after so long away has been 
like coming home.

She graduated from Emma Sansom High School and 
attended Gadsden State Community College and 
earned a B.M.E. from Jacksonville State 
University in 1996.  She was a member of the 
A capella choir, Chamber Singers,  and Show 
Choir.   She was a charter member of the 
Madrigal choir, and performed with the drama 
department.

Her other activities include performing as much 
as possible on the stage with groups such as the 
Theatre of Gadsden, Characters Entertainment, 
and other theatrical groups. She has been the 
choir director at First United Methodist Church 
of Attalla since 2003. She has served as a 
Girl Scout leader for 7 years.  She has three 
very active daughters: Megan, a senior at JSU 
studying music education, Erin a sophomore at 
Southside High School, active in band, choir, 
and the Etowah Youth Orchestras, and Sydney, 
a eighth grader at Rainbow Middle, also in 
choir and Band.
