Mrs. LaDonna Harris
My name is Mrs. LaDonna Harris and I am your child's new 5th grade math/science teacher for the 2021-2022 school year here at Indiana Elementary! I am very excited to teach all of our college-bound students and guide them through sixth grade. I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education (K-9) degree from Chicago State University which followed an extensive educational program of observing, mentoring, tutoring, assessing, student teaching and then intermediate grade level teaching within Chicago Public Schools over the course of five years prior to joining the Matteson SD in 2018. During the last few school years, I’ve designed instructional plans, performed various assessments, served as the MTSS lead and conducted day to day teaching in literacy, SEL, science, writing and mathematics. Over the summer, I worked as a teacher for the Matteson SD in the summer school program creating curriculum-based projects and I currently serve as Indiana's PBIS lead coach/facilitator. I am very eager to educate our young people that will eventually grow into our future’s doctors, lawyers, engineers, architects, inventors and more!! Let’s go fifth grade WILDCATS!!
