Hello! Welcome to room 139! My name is Erin McDonough, this is my second year teaching.  I attended Drake University and Upper Iowa University.  I have a dog named Macy, we like to go for walks and play ball.  Before I was a teacher I was a librarian and I love books and reading!
If you would like your student to have extra spelling practice here is a link for the Spelling City website we use in our classroom.
