Dear Parents/ Guardians,





     My name is Mrs. McDonald and I am delighted to have your child in my fourth grade class this year! This is my third year at Kimmel Farm Elementary School. I am very excited to be a part of the Kimmel Farm family and I look forward to working with you throughout our time together in order to provide the best educational experience for your child. I feel that a strong parent/guardian teacher relationship plays a key role in student’s success. 


    I would love to let you know a few things about my educational background. I graduated from Lees-McRae College with my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.  I believe that every child can learn, but they will do so in different ways and at different times. When your child enters my classroom, he/ she is entering a learning community that is based on respect and kindness. I have high expectations, both academically and behaviorally.It is my goal to provide your child with diverse opportunities in order to showcase their unique skills and strengths. This year will be challenging in many ways, but with your help I know that your child can rise to the challenge and have an awesome time in fourth grade!

     Please feel free to contact me at any time and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Mrs. McDonald
