Mrs. Donna Ferrell
I am originally from Decatur, Alabama, where I graduated from Austin High School, many moons ago. After graduation, I attended Calhoun Community College before transferring to Judson College, where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I graduated in 2011 from UAB with a master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. This year I will begin my thirtieth year of teaching. I have taught first and second grade in the Perry County school system and first grade in the Bibb County school system before finding my way to Shelby County in 2006 when my family and I moved to Helena. I taught first grade, here at Creek View Elementary, for nine years before making the change to ESL.
This summer I celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary with my husband, Tim, who is a retired police officer from the city of Helena. We have one daughter, Hannah, who currently lives in Tuscaloosa. We also have one dog named Jebediah, who actually works as a service dog for my husband! My hobbies include reading, camping and hanging out at the pool during the summer!
