Mrs. Tracy McDonald
Welcome to a new year in 2nd grade! What a year this will be as we all learning new things in new ways.
Let me tell you about myself. I am a native of San Antonio and I have been a Northern Hills Bronco since 2005. I taught fourth grade for 11 years, third grade for four years, and this will be my first time teaching second grade. I went to college at both American University in Washington, D.C. and Concordia University in Austin.
My favorite subject to teach is math. I love reading fiction and fostering english bulldogs. I am also a good cook and known for my blueberry pies. I have three children who are grown up now and living in San Antonio, Chicago and Austin. Mr. McDonald is a professional photographer for a company here in San Antonio. We like to travel, especially to Ireland, where we lived for 10 years.
I am really excited about second grade this year. We will be setting sail for a fantastic adventure.
