Hello!  My name is Nikki McDonald I am so excited because this will be my 11th year teaching and 4th year in the Mesa School District.  I am always so excited to meet my new students.  This is an exciting time for your children as they enter school as Kindergartners. 

     I grew up in Bedford Park, IL (20 minutes from Chicago) and moved to Arizona in July 2015.  I received my Bachelors Degree from Governors State University in University Park, IL and my Masters from University of Illinois at Chicago in Chicago, IL.  I started my career in 2009 by teaching Pre-K and then moved to a first grade classroom.

 I decided to try something different and that brought me to working as a developmental Therapist for children Birth-Three with developmental delays.  I then decided to go back to teaching and moved to Gilbert, AZ in July 2015 to work in a Phoenix School District.. 

          I live in Chandler with my boyfriend, two sons (11 and 3.5 years old) and daughter (2 years old) and our 3 dogs.  I am also pregnant with my fourth (and last) child which is also a girl.  I love hanging out with my family, trying new restaurants, going to baseball games and watching my older son play sports.
