Welcome to first grade! I am Donna Byrd. I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a Bachelor of Science and received my Master of Arts in Education at Cumberland University. I have been teaching first grade here at Kenwood since 1998. I believe that school should be a wonderful exciting place that motivates students to want to learn. Each day I try to create a child-centered environment while relating students' learning to real life experiences. It is my belief that when parents and teachers work together, children are more successful in their academic career. I believe that frequent communication and parent involvement play a vital role in the education of children.
