Hello My Name Is...


<Mrs. Donnelly>

2016-1017 marks my 5th year as a science teacher here at St. Mary's Elementary School. Our school is wonderful place. I am happy to be part of such a wonderful community.

 I have spent a total of 15 years teaching science to middle schoolers. Within  that time, I stepped out of the classroom for 10 years so that I could stay home with my children. Upon returning to the classroom, my heart was filled with love as a looked at classroom through the eyes of a teacher and a parent.

I am the product of Catholic Elementary Schools. I received a Bachelor or Science in Biology from Nazareth College of Rochester in 1992 and a Master of Science in Education from St John's University in 1996. My children have attended Catholic Schools and they remain proud products of Catholic education.  I am happy to share this commitment with parents of today.
