Welcome to Mrs.Donovan's 2nd Grade!

Hi 2nd Grade! My name is Veronica Donovan. I am a Northern Virginia native and am a parishioner of St.Thomas More Cathedral. This is my sixth year teaching. 
I have experience in both third and fourth grades but have worked and subbed in the past for many grade levels ranging from Kindergarten to High School. I am dedicated to providing differentiated instruction and focusing on the whole person (mind, body, and soul) in all aspects of my teaching philosophy. I am committed to the awareness of each child's mental and emotional health and how it impacts their education. I believe all students should be taught social and emotional skills...they are the capstone of their future through which all else flows. 
This Catholic Community is truly so wonderful and I am blessed to be a apart of it. My favorite saints are St.Therese of Lisieux and St.Joseph the Worker.  I love to spend my days reading good books, watching documentaries, and learning to cook a new recipe. Some of my favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and Disney.
