Donna brings a wealth of teaching experience, wisdom and depth of understanding to the position.  She believes that supporting and guiding good teachers is the best way to help students achieve more than just high test scores, namely, and more importantly, to reach their dreams.  She loves working with people---students, parents, colleagues, and the general public and has faced many challenges in dealing with people.  She possesses and 
demonstrates the wisdom and caring that people appreciate.

As a veteran teacher, Donna has experienced all of the changes and challenges brought on by No Child Left Behind and meeting Adequate Yearly Progress goals. Despite the inevitable large pendulum swings in education, she has always seen the wisdom of providing a balanced approach. As the curriculum has evolved to more “a mile deep and an inch wide” focus, she has made sure to adapt when witnessing a lack of student engagement.

Donna was encouraged to pursue educational leadership by her pastor, Dr. Robert Colson, who told her that she would make an excellent administrator. He had witnessed her leadership as the director of the church’s music ministry for the past eleven years and by her work as a youth group leader.  She earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho in May of 2012.

Donna’s first passion has been for her students’ welfare and learning. Her appointment as a PSC member will allow her to support, guide, and help teachers in these difficult times for both educators and students. NWPE is proud to have nominated this distinguished educator to the PSC.  We wish Donna and her colleagues every success as they work to advance the professionalism of educators for the sake of the students we serve.
