Background: Hello!  My name is Donna Girty. This will be my second year teaching at Jackson Park Elementary. I am delighted to be here! I have taught kindergarten for five years in the Rowan Salisbury School District, but I’ve been working with young children for over twenty years. I am a native of Boston, Massachusetts. My husband and have been married for thirty-six years. We have two children and seven grandchildren! I am so excited to have your child in my classroom this year!  

My favorite quote is 
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." In my classroom, students will engage in hands-on multi-sensory activities that will help them to be able to grow and develop physically, socially and emotionally, cognitively and academically! If you have any questions or need to contact me for any reason please do not hesitate to contact me at my school email address: or Classdojo. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year!

I graduated from Catawba College with a BA degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Birth Through Kindergarten. I have an Associate Degree in Early Childhood. I also had the wonderful experience of being named Teacher of the Year at my former school!
