Ms. McDonald
    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I hope you had a relaxing and fun summer. I want to take the time to introduce myself and let you know some things about this year. I am excited that your child is in my class this year. My mission and goal as your child’s teacher is to help your child reach their full potential while raising their self-esteem and belief in themselves.
    I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education K-6 and a Master's Degree in Instructional Design. My past  teaching experiences  range from teaching sixth graders, first graders, and kindergartners to teaching adult basic education and the G.E.D. program. 
    It is important that your child enters fourth grade reading at grade level with solid comprehension skills. He/She will be reading across the curriculum in all subjects and will be expected to have a deep understanding of what has  been read at school and home.
    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to a great year with your child! Thank you for sharing your child with me. Also, thank you for all your help and support with your child’s education. I look forward to working with you this year toward the best interest of your child.
    You may contact me at the following:  Work phone # 910-671-6070 or email:chrystal.mcdonald@robeson.k12.nc.us
