Hello! My name is Tina McDonald. This is my third year at Pearman Elementary. I will be teaching third grade math and science. My previous teaching experience spans all subjects in grades first through sixth. I've also worked at Cypress Park Elementary.
I was born and raised in the Merigold/Cleveland area. I graduated from Cleveland High School in 1990. In 1997, I received my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Delta State University.
I have three wonderful children. Haley is 22 years old and attends graduate school at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. She wants to become a forensic pathologist or medical examiner. Cody is 20 and attends Mississippi Delta Community College. In May 2019, he will receive an associate's degree in Electrical Technology. Michaela is 14 and attends Cleveland Central High School. She is in the drama club. I also take care of my grandparents. They are 94 and 87. They raised me, and now I am happy to return the favor.
I have three dogs (Darwin, Dixon, and Buttercup). Darwin is a treeing fiest and is 11 years old. Dixon is a bullypit and is 5 years old. Buttercup is a lab and hound dog mix who is also 5 years old.
My hobbies are puzzles, reading, and flower gardening. I have several model fairy gardens. I also attend many concerts of different genres. Attending classic car shows and going on road trips are two types of events I look forward to every year.
I love teaching third grade math and science! I look forward to working with all my students this year!
