About Mrs. Donley
This year is my fourth year teaching 4th grade Math! I graduated from Texas A&M University in Commerce with a Bachelor's of Science-Interdisciplinary Studies degree. My Concentration is Elementary Generalist (EC-6) and English as a Second Language (ESL). I did a year student teaching in a 2nd grade and a 3rd grade classroom at Sulphur Spring ISD, and I worked for half a year as the Reading Lab Aide here at Rains Intermediate.
I married my husband, Jake, in 2011. We moved to Childress, TX for a year, but decided that we love being in this area, so we moved back to start our careers and a family! We have a son, River, a daughter, Lakelyn, and two fur babies (rat terriers), Cephus and Ladybug.
I am delighted to have your child in my class!
Wish List for the Classroom
Math is my very favorite subject in school! I know not everyone enjoys math as much as I do, so this year I am looking to enhance my math lessons by incorporating books about math skills I am teaching to grab the interest of students.
Math is one unexpected place we can bring books into the study to make the concepts more concrete. Kids can see the reasons for learning their math facts. They can see how certain math concepts, like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division can be used in the real world. They can see how math works!
I want to be able to reach the student that may love reading, but might not like math as much and the student that loves math, but doesn’t enjoy reading. I want to provide students with lessons that show connections between reading, writing, and math. Above all else, I want to help students enjoy math as much as I do.
Please help me build my library of math books for my classroom for this coming school year and the years that follow. Below is a link to my 4th grade math book wish list and a link to my 4th grade items/supplies wish list. I ask of you to help me build my library of math books for my 4th grade math classroom and/or help supply my classroom with items that will benefit the students for this coming school year and the students in the years that follow. My students at Rains Intermeditate and I appreciate any and all help to make our school year successful!
