Donna first learned about Cookson Hills when she was a teenager! Through her home church, she was able to meet several Cookson students throughout the years. Donna moved to Cookson Hills in June of 2019 when her husband, Ron, became the Executive Director. She officially joined our staff in May of 2020 as our Kindergarten/First Grade Teacher! Donna adores her students and loves working with the staff at CHCS. Donna received her Associates degree from Ozark Christian College, Bachelors from Missouri Southern State College, and her Masters in Special Education from Morningside College in Iowa. If you cannot find Donna in her classroom, she’s probably hanging out with her kids Sarah, Joel, Alexis, Valarie, & Jonny, reading, or watching TV.
