Mrs. McDonald, who joined this year as a new faculty member, will teach English Three and English Four, advise in the Third Form, and coach Fourth soccer and Fifth basketball. Mrs. McDonald grew up in Manchester MA, as the youngest of four sisters. She attended Manchester Central High School playing soccer, running track, and working with the school newspaper. After high school, Mrs. McDonald went to Middlebury College for her undergraduate studies, where she also received a Master of Arts Degree in English from Middlebury’s Bread Loaf School of English.
Mrs. McDonald lives with her husband and two children, Riley, age six, and Billy, age five. She likes to spend her free time with her family and in nature. Before coming to Belmont Hill, she taught at The Stevenson School in Pebble Beach, California, and more recently at the Dexter Southfield School in Brookline, MA as the Chair of the English Department and also a community service coordinator.
Mrs. McDonald is excited to work with her Third and Fourth Form students and help them improve their English writing skills. In just her first month, she has made the impression of being knowledgeable and friendly. We are anticipating a great year with Mrs. McDonald and we welcome her onto our campus!
