Welcome, Ms. Donovan!

With a new week brings our new instructional assistant, Kate Donovan. I am very excited to be working closely with Ms. Donovan to continue to make our kindergarten classroom an exciting, loving, and learning-filled space. Here’s everything you need (or want) to know about Ms. Donovan!

She is originally from Los Angeles, CA and moved to Santa Barbara two years ago.

She graduated from Cal State Northridge and then got her teaching credential.

Ms. Donovan did her student teaching in a kindergarten classroom and fell in love with this age group and classroom setting.

Before joining Laguna Blanca, she worked in a K-6 setting as a behavioral specialist.

Ms. Donovan spends every summer at the Kern River and recently got engaged there.

She loves being outdoors and going to the beach.

Please help me in extending a warm welcome to Ms. Donovan!
