Welcome to our classroom page!
Hello, my name is Heather McDonough. This is my 2nd year teaching at Ridgeland Elementary School but this will be my 4th year teaching since receiving my degree.I am so excited to be here and meet new faces! I love to be active and have a passion for sports. I also enjoy reading, painting, spending time with my family and friends, and playing with my dog Chase. My very supportive family is currently in New York. I have a caring mom, an encouraging dad, and I am the middle child between 2 boys who keep me tough and grounded.
I received my undergrad at St. Joseph's College and I am certified in General Education Birth through 6th Grade and Special Education Birth through 6th Grade in both New York and South Carolina. I also have 2 Master's Degree in Learning and Technology and Math Education from Western Governor's University.
My job is to ensure that each child is reaching their fullest potential in all aspects of life. I will encourage them to be the best that they can be in their attitude, their education, their social life, and emotional life. We are learning to be leaders in our classroom, in our school, and in our community.
