Welcome to Leanne Donahue's Wiki Page

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! I am very excited to start my eighth year teaching at Har Bur Middle School!

After raising my family and working in both the Media and Health Club Industries for many years, I returned to school in 2002 to become a certified teacher. Prior to Har-Bur Middle School, I taught at the Middle School of Plainville and Rocky Hill High School. While in Plainville, I created the Middle School Health Curriculum. My time spent at Rocky Hill High School involved teaching Culinary Arts I and II. And in my spare time, I earned a M.A. degree in Reading and Language Arts from Saint Joseph College.

My children are now in High School. My son, Sam is seventeen and in the 11th grade. My daughter, Olivia is fifteen and in the 10th grade. My Golden Retriever, Jake, is nine (or as I commonly refer to him as my "115 pound lap dog"!). We also have a twenty three pound kittie named Louie....yes 23 pounds!!!!

My activities include running, camping, reading and cooking! Of course, all of my leisure activities work around my children's sports and activities and teaching your children!

The best way to reach me is via email at donahuel@region10ct.org. You may also call the school at 860-673-6163. Please refer to the links on the right side of this page for information regarding 8th grade Human Growth and Development and 6th grade Nutrition/Introduction to Foods.
