Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Donna Alexander
My name is Donna Alexander and I have been married 51 years, with two children who graduated from Wills Point High School, and three wonderful grandsons. I knew in fourth grade that I wanted to be a teacher and eventually received my B.S. and M.Ed. degrees from East Texas State University in Commerce. I retired teaching in 2017 having spent the last thirty-five years of my forty-three years teaching at Woods Intermediate. In January 2019 the principal at the Middle School, Mrs. Calvery, recognized my passion for working with children as a substitute and offered me a newly created position as a special ed. inclusion aide. The fact that I was no longer in charge of my own classroom was a little hard to get used to, but there is nothing more rewarding than to work with children on a daily basis and develop relationships with each one as you work through skills that need a little boost. One of my greatest rewards has been to see ex-students long after they've graduated and to see what they've become. They always tell me something they remember about being in my class. There is nothing more fulfilling than being an educator!
