Donni was not a burnout, and Mrs. R was not at MHS last year - so what's up with last comment? I had her for two years and liked her very much.

Donni retired last year but she wrote letters of recommendations for me and a lot of other kids this year. She was one of the best teachers in the school and definately the kindest. We miss her.

I really hit the jackpot in social studies, especially because I spent the first year with Cronin and the last two with Donnison - they are great teachers and awesome women.

She retired, so I won't be able to have her again in my senior year. Even though she will not be here, she is going to write letters of recommendation for us. Funny, smart and very kind..

It is rather unfortunate that people such as K. Donnison can get paid to waste not only their own time, but the time, money, and education of others. If you want to learn anything in history,stay away

By far the best teacher I ever had. She was incredibly helpful throughout my college admissions search, and I know her letter of recommendation made a difference. It was Miss Donnison who taught me how to write a formal essay, how to think critically and how to study. When I was in journalism school at Northwestern I thanked her more than once for having taught me how to do research. Her passion for history and teaching was infectious. She is someone whom I will always consider my teacher and friend.

Plus: Teaches current events and history Neg: Wastes class time on pointless tangents ("here's how to parallel park") Neg: Does not know how to grade her classes

One of the greast teachers ever! Is willing to step away from the state course to teach current events- to make her students aware of the world they live in! Amazing person

A terrific person, amazingly funny. Health problems caused her to be absent a lot when I had her- that certainly was a problem and effected the amount I learned
