Mrs. Shawnta McDonald

Hello! My name is Shawnta McDonald and I am honored to be a member of the Diamond Canyon family! My career in education began nine years ago with Indianapolis Public Schools. During this time, I taught fourth grade for two years and spent the remaining seven years as a high school guidance counselor.

I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and migrated, with my family, to Arizona in June 2018. I am married to my wonderful husband Carleton and we have two sons and a daughter. I graduated from Purdue University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in Psychology. In 2009 I graduated from Indiana University with a master's degree in school counseling and counselor education. Last but not least, I attended Marian University and obtained a second master's degree in elementary education in 2011. 

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you and your scholar!
