• A little about me:

My name is Carol Macdonald.  I am a first grade teacher on A track at Eastvale Elementary.  I have been an elementary school teacher for 23 years.  I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton, a California Professional Teaching Credential, a Bilingual Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development Certificate, and a Masters degree in Education from  Claremont Graduate University.  I also hold a Reading Recovery Certificate from the Los Angeles County Department of Education.
     

    My Family

    I have two teenage sons.  My husband is a teacher at River Heights Intermediate. We enjoy spending time as a family.  Our pets include two dogs, a cat and a tortoise.

    Observations

    Sometimes you will see adults learning to become teachers visiting our classroom for many weeks.  I have had student teachers from the University of Redlands, the University of Riverside, and University of La Verne.  I love teaching and enjoy helping others new to the profession. Best of luck to my former student teachers: Martha Unzuete-Perez, Lindsey Dillon, Gwen Plecas.  You are all so talented and will make excellent teachers!
