Mrs. Amanda McDonald

This is my second year as the art teacher at Highland Elementary and my 11th year teaching art!  I moved to North Carolina last year from Birmingham, Alabama.  In Alabama, I taught elementary art and middle school art education for 9 years. Alabama has been my home for over 30 years... but I am loving it here in North Carolina!  GO BLUE DEVILS!!! 
I received my B.A. from Birmingham-Southern College (Class of 2003).  The following year, I completed my Masters in Art Education from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.  I live in Carrboro with my husband (Roy) and my three sons, Gerald (9 years old), Lucas (6 years old), and JoJo (2 years old). We also have a miniature daschund named Roscoe (my first fur baby).
