Degrees and Certifications:
First, I want to welcome you to my class! I am so excited to get to know the students and families of Meadow Park Elementary School.
I just got married last year, so I am now Mrs. McDonald instead of Miss Pan. This is my 9th year as a 1st-grade teacher. I am originally from Pennsylvania where I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I am reading certified and I have my ESOL certification (English for Speakers of Other Languages).
I love to go shopping and have coffee dates with my friends. I enjoy being crafty and trying new things.
My goal this year is to instill in each student a love for learning while creating an environment that encourages each child to strive to give their greatest effort and do their personal best each day.
Here are some of my favorites:
Color: changes daily
Food: cauliflower, broccoli, chicken wings, buttered croissants, and creme brulee
Book: Snowy Day
Drink: Coffee and tea
Animal: cats, dinosaurs, and octopuses
Things to do: shop, watch movies, make crafts
