Special Education- Learning Disabilities (Bachelors) Autism Spectrum Disorders- Certification from Converse
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Macdonald and I am a 3K special education teacher at the ELC. I have been teaching here for 5 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 being outdoors with my husband and our two dogs. I love to travel and have been to multiple countries including Senegal, Japan, England, Scotland, and Ireland. I also enjoy cooking and use that as a method of relaxing after a long day. My husband and I both believe in God, and believe in living a life worthy of following Him while in constant relationship with Him. We like to be involved in our churches ministries, and believe that walking side by side with God has to look like something in our lives different from the norm.
I am looking forward to another great school year, and can’t wait to meet you and your child!
