My name is Ms. Marie McDonough, and this is my first year teaching at MASSA. I previously worked at the high school level teaching all different subjects, but my true passions are language arts and history. I studied political philosophy at the University of Dallas for two years before I transferred to the University of Arizona, where I graduated with a B.A. in Creative Writing. My goal is to help my students think creatively and critically--and to practice kindness in the process!
