Donna Jay, 7th grade Special Education Teacher

My career in education began some years ago in Pennsylvania, specifically Bucks County, which is a suburb of Philadelphia.  During my career, I have been a Learning Support Teacher for Special Education grades 1-6, Instructional Support Teacher supporting at-risk students and a Coach/Mentor to teachers..  This school year will be my first time working with 7th grade students.  I am very excited about beginning the next phase of my career as an inclusion teacher at STMS!. 

As a long-time boater on the Chesapeake Bay and tributaries, I am finally living in the area where I boat!  I love being on the water and exploring new anchorages with my husband!  Crabbing and eating crabs is another passion! It is so amazing to be blessed and be able to enjoy the beautiful Eastern Shore.  My German Shepherd, Eli, is a very special part of my life also.  He was rescued from a shelter 5 years ago.  Eli is an amazing dog who never leaves my side when I am home with him.
