B.A. in Philosophy, Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH
Mrs. McDonald is teaching Classical Literature and Composition and English Literature and Composition. She is also the director of the Drama Program for Juniors and Seniors. If you are thinking that Mrs. McDonald bears a striking resemblance to Miss Emily DeJulio who taught at the Academy last year, it is because she married Derek McDonald this last June. The newlyweds were blessed to receive a private audience with Pope Francis during their honeymoon in Rome. One interesting quality of Mrs. McDonald is that she is more comfortable singing as a soloist in front of an audience than singing in a full choir. As her students know well, she also holds particular affinity toward owls.
