Ladonna has been in education for over 40 years, but feels that each school year is a new beginning and is still enthused to continue on this journey. She starts each day excited to see what it brings. LaDonna  loves watching the eyes of children light up when they "get it.” That same feeling comes when staff members embrace a new technique or step out of their comfort zone to bring new learning to students. Making sure that all students are able to receive a top notch education that will enable them to reach their passion is her calling. LaDonna’s personal mission is to LIVE - live each day to the fullest, LOVE - love each person and she wants to be treated and LAUGH - see the good in everything, there is laughter all around, no matter the circumstances.

Fun Fact: LaDonna loves to cook and is willing to try new recipes and tastes, but her family doesn't always like this.

Favorite PBS Character/Show: Molly of Denali because she “likes to learn about different places, even if she has never visited there.”
