Mrs. MacDonald

What are you reading? A question that I ask and have been asked throughout my life. Reading is vital in the study of English. We learn via the written word. Reading has allowed me to explore places that I may never visit personally. Reading introduces me to characters that help me to understand the world in which we live. Reading allows me to escape the mundane and gain insight into new topics. Reading allows me to be a lifelong learner.

I am a graduate of Florida Atlantic University. A born and raised Floridian, who misses the ocean deeply, but has learned to love the mountains and awaits the snow every year.

  •  The pandemic is changing to an endemic and we will continue to give our students the best education possible!  I am looking forward to getting to know each of you. I will be using Google Classroom for assignments. 

    You can contact me via email (cmacdonald@caldwellschools. com)  or 828-758-7376x 355 

    Parents: You can access and see what your child is doing on Google Classroom. Please send me an email and I will invite you to join. 

     This will be an interesting year and I am sure we will have bumps along the way, but we will succeed.

     “When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.” 
    -Paulo Coelho, writer
