Hello, 
My name is Ms. Shirley McDonald. This is my 26th year working for Overton County Schools. I love my job and am glad to assist you and your child in any way that I can. I will be covering a variety of topics this year, including; career exploration, Bullying, Suicide Prevention, Drug awareness, and many others.
We will be using a new career exploration program called Virtualjobshadowing.com. Feel free to check that out and see all of the cool things it has to offer.
 
Feel free to contact me with questions and concerns via email (smcdonald@oc-sd.com) or phone 931-823-5917.

For the remainder of the year I will be taking my classes outdoors on pretty days to do activities. We will be playing games and doing social activities that will enhance their social and team building skills.
