My name is Karissa McDonald. I am a graduate of Texas Tech University with degrees in Communication Studies and Sociology. I have been a staff member of TTU EHS since 2011. I love getting to work with passionate educators and staff that focus on child development. Being around the children is such a joy and they teach us just as much as we teach them. I love learning about the backgrounds and abilities of the children so we can create and provide a positive, stimulating learning environment. I love teaching at TTU EHS because we value the importance of developmentally appropriate practices that include all children and work hard to represent our child-led curriculum that promotes school readiness.
