First Grade


Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies - Elementary Education , Tennessee Tech University, May 2016


I was extremely fortunate to have completed my seven month residency program in first grade at Battle Academy in historic downtown Chattanooga.  This magnet school’s theme is Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, which provided me with many opportunities to engage students with a variety of learning needs in meaningful and challenging experiences.

I am excited to begin my teaching career in first grade here at North Hamilton County Elementary!


Hello! My name is Amber McDonald and I am very excited to be teaching 1st grade at North Hamilton County Elementary!  I am married to my wonderful husband of 7 years and we have 2 growing boys, Aiden is 11 and Liam is 5. In my spare time I love to go hiking with my family, going to the movies, reading, and cooking. 

Teaching has been a lifelong goal of mine since I was a very young girl. I believe all children deserve a caring teacher who will meet them at their individual academic, social, and emotional level and help them grow and develop to reach their goals

Leaping into my first year of teaching will be an amazing adventure, which I am so excited to experience. My hope for the coming school year is to excite my students  to grow a love for learning through an exploratory, high energy, authentic curriculum. Together, we will discover real world questions and dig deep to arrive at their answers.
