About the Doser Family

Thanks for visiting DOSER.ORG. We hope you find our web site interesting. If you are curious, here is a little information about us:

Mark: I was born in Rochester, New York and grew up in nearby Fairport. After teaching for several years in the Rochester area, I moved to Lake Placid, in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. I taught social studies at Keene Central School in Keene Valley. I developed a real love for the Adirondack Mountains. The pictures of the Adirondacks on this web site I took myself. In 1996 and 1997 I taught English at two summer language camps in Banya, Bulgaria and Yalta, Cimea, Ukraine. There are many pictures and more information on the Bulgaria and Crimea pages. In 1998 I began teaching English in Sofia, Bulgaria on a fellowship from the University of Montana. From 1999 to 2004 I taught world history at the American College of Sofia. In 1999 I married Iva. I like to play the guitar, listen to music, go skiing, be outdoors, use computers and speak Bulgarian. Some of my favorite foods are:  pizza, chili, wafer cookies (вафли, in Bulgarian), kavarma, musaka and tacos. (See the Bulgarian page for descriptions of Bulgarian food.) I teach US History and Economics at Penfield High School.

Iva: I was born in Gabrovo, Bulgaria, the youngest of three sisters. I graduated from the Aprilov High School in Gabrovo, which was the first school established in all of Bulgaria in 1835. I met Mark in 1996. I attended Sofia University and graduated in 2000 with a degree in Law. I like to go for walks, exercise to keep in shape and visit new places. I am a financial services representative for Canandaigua National Bank.
