Mrs. Macdonald

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Macdonald and I am a 3K/4K special education teacher at the ELC. I have been teaching here for 3 years and was excited, humbled, and blessed to be awarded teacher of the year for the 2018-2019 school year! I originally grew up in Columbia, SC, but moved to Spartanburg after attending USC upstate for my degree in special education. I spent the past 2 years obtaining a certification in autism spectrum disorders from Converse College, and just received that certification May of 2018. I have always wanted to be a teacher since I was young, but really fell in love with special education when I was in college and realized how much of an impact I could make on these kiddos lives.

Outside of school I enjoy teaching a 3K class at my church every Sunday, and volunteering with our churches other ministries. When I want to relax you can find me outdoors with my husband and our two dogs. On any given weekend we may be hiking, kayaking, traveling, or driving up to Lake Jocassee. My favorite way to relax though is through cooking. I think it is one of the best activities to do after a long day.

I am looking forward to another great school year, and can’t wait to see what’s in store!
