Hello! My name is Tina McDonald. This is my fifth year at Pearman Elementary. I am teaching fifth grade math and social studies and sixth grade social studies. 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 24 years old. Cody is 21. Michaela is 16 and attends Cleveland Central High School. She is in the drama club. I also take care of my grandmother. She is 88. She 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 12 years old. Dixon is a bullypit and is 6 years old. Buttercup is a lab and hound dog mix who is also 6 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 math and social studies! I look forward to working with all my students this year!
