Donna has been a God send to our 1st grade team. She takes on many extra tasks without hesitation and does it with JOY! She has moved to 1st grade on a whims notice and did very gracefully. She’s always willing to give to others any way that she can. I love her spirit and love for God and others, especially her students. She has created a bond with them and shows them her love every day. She is a true GEM. Thank you Donna for being such a great inspiration.
