My name is Melissa McDonald. I have been teaching at Valley Springs Elementary since 1996. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree from College of the Ozarks, a Master’s in Education from Lindenwood University, and a Master’s in Library Media Science from the University of Central Arkansas . I LOVE reading! Some of my fondest memeories from childhood involve reading. I remember the day I was finally old enough to get my very own library card. I was over the moon excited! I hope my love of reading shines through, and helps to ignite that fire in your children as well. Thank you for sharing your children with me.
