I am so happy that McDonnell Elementary will be serving you and your family as they pursue an education. One thing I love about McDonnell, is that it is truly a community school. This is my 4th year as principal of McDonnell Elementary School. I have lived in Huntsville for 8 years. I had the opportunity to work in several states due to my husband’s reassignments as a military officer. I have a background in Special Education, behavior and ESL. I have two sons one is at a military academy and the other has already joined the workforce. I enjoy watching my children walk into school with a smile. They teach me something every day. I like to spend my free time exercising and relaxing with friends.
