Welcome! I hope that you are doing well and that you are staying healthy and safe. I am Mrs. McDonald, and I will be your Title I Reading and Writing teacher this year. I have been teaching for 35 years and have been at the Robert C. Dodson School for over 20 years.   I am really looking forward to working with you.  I am sure I will be amazed at all you do!

We will be working with Microsoft Teams this year.  Although I have been teaching for a very long time, the process is new to me as well.  We will learn to navigate the waters together!
