About Your Teacher

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to first grade.  I would like to take a minute to introduce myself.  I have been teaching for eight years.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Florida State University in Early Childhood Education and my Master’s degree from University of South Florida in Educational Leadership.  I am in the process of becoming National Board Certified.  I was born and raised in Orlando and have been in the Tampa area for eight years. I have two Chihuahua’s, eight and four years old.  I enjoy exercise, photography, going to movies and of course, teaching!  I am dedicated to make this a great year for you and your child. Please feel free to contact me at any time during the year.  I can be reached through notes in your child’s communication folder, through email at deidra.mcdonald@sdhc.k12.fl.us or you can call the school at 813-975-7337 and leave a message.
