My name is Mr. Donaldson and I teach sixth grade Social Studies on Team Fidelis. This is my 21st year teaching overall in Mt. Vernon City Schools. I have been teaching at MVMS for 16 years and taught Pleasant Street (5th grade) for five years. I have also been a coach in the Jackets football and girls' basketball programs for many years.
I graduated from Muskingum University in 2001 with a B.A. in Elementary Education. Additionally, I graduated from Ashland University in 2008 with an M.A. in Education Administration. My educational licenses include Elementary 1-8, SLD K-12, and Principal K-12.
My wife, Melissa, and I have three boys. Garrett (3rd grade) and Graham (Kindergarten) both attend East Elementary. Griffin just turned two. The boys occupy a lot of our free time. We are involved in the Mt. Vernon community and love to attend school functions to support the Jackets!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me using the information to the right. I look forward to working collaboratively with my colleagues, parents, and students to create a learning environment in which all students can be successful.
