Mrs. McDonald

Hello!

My name is Mrs. McDonald. This is my 3rd year here at Global Arts plus and my 11th year teaching. I have a background in elementary science and a masters degree in reading curriculum and instruction. I enjoy arts education and am passionate about my work here with my first grade scholars.

This year, we are joined by a student teacher from the University of Minnesota, Ms. Gronfor. She is working toward her master's degree in elementary education. She brings fresh perspective, great energy, and a joy for learning to our classroom!
