Since 1991, Doug Hoverson has taught Social Studies at Saint Thomas Academy, specializing in AP U.S. History and AP Government. In addition to his current co-curricular assignments, he has also served as Head Track Coach, Head Debate Coach, Head Speech Coach and been a member of the Worship Band. His favorite time at Saint Thomas Academy dates back to 2000-2001, when his debate team won both a state and national championship. Doug has published two books on the history of the Upper Midwest through the University of Minnesota Press.
About his role, Doug says “Saint Thomas Academy gives me a chance to share my academic and co-curricular passions with students who want to go beyond the basics. My colleagues are so good at what they do that we can all be ourselves and be confident that our students get a well-rounded experience.”
