Ms. Erin McDonald

I am so excited to be working at Prairie View High School this year in the social studies department!  I've lived in Colorado since the 3rd grade and graduated from the University of Northern Colorado (go bears!!).  While at UNC I completed the honors program and published my thesis titled "African Art History in the Secondary Educational Setting".  I have traveled to over 13 countries, both to study abroad and to visit, and my most recent trip was to Ghana (located in West Africa) for a Harvard research program.  I completed my masters degree at the University of Kentucky in Art History with an emphasis in African art in 2015. I have experience teaching High School and College, at the University of Kentucky and Community College of Aurora.  In my spare time I love hiking, exploring new places, reading, painting, giving museum tours, kayaking, and going to baseball games.
