About Ms. Donahue:

I received my love of children from my lovely Irish parents.  They had 
eight children and focused their lives on their brood.  

I previously taught 3rd grade for eleven years.  This is my seventh year 
in 2nd grade.  I absolutely love my job and love working with children.  
Watching a child become successful is one of the greatest joys.

I have two sons, Paul Michael and Jimmy who are both out of college and 
working for a living (yes!).   

I am an avid cyclist and gardener. 

My absolute favorite thing to do is to READ!!!  My kindle is my best 
friend!  Well, maybe not my best...I do have two chocolate labrador 
retrievers (ages 13 and 10) and a third dog who is 9 and is a 
husky/malamute mix.  I also have 3 grand dogs.  Ruby is 2 and is a red bone coonhound.  Blu is 10 months old and is a King Corso Italian Mastiff.  Bear is 9 monthss and is a chocolate labrador retriever.

(Yes, we do a lot of laughing in my classroom!!!)
