A little about me:Hello. 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.
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.
ObservationsSometimes 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!
