Welcome! My name is Alyssa Mashaw and I feel blessed to be working in the greatest profession. I graduated from the University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!) with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies EC-6. I later received my certificate in ESL and have recently become STEM certified. This will be my fourth year teaching at Donald Elementary. My classroom is one of my favorite places in the world, and I am thankful each day for my job.
I have a younger brother, Ethan, who is a Junior at Oklahoma State University and a younger sister, Olivia, in her Senior year at Booker T. Washington High School of Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas. My siblings are my whole heart and I hope I can share many stories in my classroom to inspire sibling bonds. My mother is a 1st grade teacher in Lewisville ISD and is a wonderful role model. I live with my husband (we were married last summer, yay!) and our sweet kitten, Stella, in the Denton area.
I was born in Lewisville, attended all LISD schools growing up, and have found myself back where I started! There is no greater feeling than being able to give back to a district that instilled a love of learning in me. Some of my favorite things include spending time with family and friends, teaching dance, decorating my classroom, and shopping! I truly enjoyed every second of my education, and I want children to understand the power of learning. I am looking forward to an exciting year!
