Donna has been a member of the NWCA teaching staff since 2008 and will return to teach in our Pre-Kindergarten classroom. Donna attended college in Shenzhen, China. She has obtained certificates from Soochow University, China, and the Confucius Institute in both Portland and China. Her past work experiences include working as a Teacher’s Aide, Special Education Assistant, and First Grade Teacher. Donna strives to provide a classroom where students are supported by loving care, patience, fairness, discipline and understanding. She is excited about her students’ desire to learn Chinese and says the best moments are those where the children speak to her in Chinese.
