Ms. SaRenna McDonald

I am SaRenna McDonald, teacher to some amazing elementary MARVELous second grade students. I didn't fall into teaching from another career choice - I majored in Elementary Education at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. In 2003 I started a new adventure when I moved to Miami, FL and began teaching at Henry ES Reeves Elementary School. My first twelve years of teaching were at the same Miami-Dade County Public School and I still have close contact with some of my former students and Principals. I held various positions during my 12yr career there. My experience as a Reading Intervention Specialist, classroom teacher and Special Education Resource teacher has helped expose so many of the obstacles that get in the way of students and their love for reading. While living in Miami I attended Barry University where I majored in Special Education and earned my Masters Degree in Education.

In August 2015 I took a leap of faith and relocated my family to Houston, TX. Go Texans! Since being in Texas I have worked at E.A. Jones in Reading Recovery, as a Prekindergarten teacher and first grade teacher. I was able to learn so much from the students and teachers there. In 2020 we all experienced dramatic changes in our daily lives and careers. COVID-19 has changed life and school as we've known it. With all of the changes also came a very welcoming change in my career. I was hired as a third grade ELA teacher at Juan Sequin Elementary School - home of the Stallions. The community and learning environment at JSES will allow me to focus on academics that will contribute to developing life long learners. 
Let the new adventures begin!
