Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Dear Parents, Students, and Families,

I am very excited to meet all of you and to be your child's teacher this year! It's going to be a wonderful year filled with fun, new friends, new adventures, and lots of learning.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Valerie MacDonald. I just got married this summer and moved to the Mesa community. This will be my second year teaching 2nd grade, and my first year at Highland Arts. Prior to teaching in the Elementary schools I worked for a preschool in Flagstaff while getting my degree from Northern Arizona University. I graduated from NAU in 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education. I have known I wanted to be a teacher since I was six years old and carried that passion for teaching with me every day since. This is going to be a great year and I am eager to embark on this new journey here at Highland Arts.
