Welcome to Room 110!

Hello!  My name is Pat McDonald. I have been teaching first grade at Wenonah since 2006. I have also taught at Keewaydin, Loring, Lincoln and Putnam.  All together I have taught for over 29 years in Minneapolis schools, most of it in first grade. I have a B.S. in elementary education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a master's degree from St. Cloud State in curriculum and instruction, specializing in reading.

I am married with two adult children, Kailyn and Nicholas. Kailyn lives in Duluth with her partner Ben.  Nicholas is married to Stephanie.  They have a daughter, Teagan--our first grandchild.  I have two cats named Hugo and Stella Blue. 
I love to garden! I have a vegetable garden, a perennial garden, a butterfly garden, and a water garden.  I also enjoy reading, swimming, biking and running and racing in triathlons.

The best way to contact me is by email: patricia.mcdonald@mpls.k12.mn.us.
