Mrs. MacDonald

I have been a special education teacher at Desert Mountain for five years. This I my third career. In a previous life I owned and ran a bakery/coffee shop for ten years in a little mountain town in Colorado. I then transferred to Arizona where I was a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative for six years. Finally, I am now able to be a teacher, which is what I went to school for originally. In 2014 I graduated from Grand Canyon University with a master’s degree in special education. In the first few years I worked with the third and fourth graders.  This year I am fortunate to work with both second and third grade students. When I am not teaching I am usually hanging out with my family- husband, daughters, and granddaughter. In quiet times you can find me doing puzzles, crosswords, coloring, and reading. Oh I also am a binger on Netflix! :)
