Mrs. Colleen McDoniell

I was born in Mobile, Al. but grew up in Avondale, Louisiana and attended school there through the end of 9th grade. My family then moved to Fort Payne, Alabama, where I attended Sand Rock High School, then we moved back to Mobile my senior year.  

I met my husband in Mobile and once married we moved to Baldwin County where he was born and raised. He attended Silverhill Elementary through the 8th grade, and our daughter attended Silverhill Elementary through the 2nd grade. While attending the University of Mobile I was assigned to Silverhill Elementary School for my student teaching experience in August of 2000. After graduation, I began my teaching career here as a computer lab teacher. This school has been a part of me and my family's life for many years and we dearly love this school!

My husband and I have 4 children, 1 daughter, and 3 sons. We also have 4 grandchildren, 1 granddaughter, and 4 grandsons. 

Teaching is not just a career choice for me...but a passion and Silverhill Elementary is not just a job, but a second family and home. :)
