Welcome! My name is Mrs. Donelle Welch. I have taught at Milaca Elementary School since 1985. Our school has amazing administrators, teachers, support staff, and students! I have loved each year of teaching as much as the last. My passion and dedication to teaching comes from the desire to make learning exciting and meaningful to my students. I have seen a lot of change in education over thirty years, but the one variable that remains the same is the importance of parents and teachers working together to support optimal learning in our school. I have had the pleasure of teaching pre-K, special education, kindergarten, first, and third grade and now Reading Recovery to first grade students. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Reading Recovery in our school.
