Degrees and Certifications:

Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education Appalachian State University

Mrs. Katrina O'Donnell

I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2015 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and I have been teaching at HES ever since. I love teaching 3rd grade and seeing the tremendous growth the children make every year. Previous to teaching, I worked in business and finance, but I have always had a passion for working with children. I am thankful to be working in education, and I hope to inspire a love of learning in all of my students. 

When I am not at school you can find me outside. I love hiking and kayaking, or just reading a book under a nice shade tree. I have been married for 20 years to my husband, James. We have two teenagers that both attended HES as children. However, the most spoiled child in our home is my beagle, Murphy.
