A Note From Our New Principal

I want to briefly introduce myself. My name is John McDonald and I am the new Albertville Primary Principal. I have 15 years of teaching experience in the Big Lake School District. I taught first grade for 10 years, as well as second and third grade for 5 years. In addition to this, I was a TOSA as a Q-Comp Peer Observer for 3 years. During this time I served as the Targeted Services Summer School Coordinator for 17 years, so I have a special place in my heart for those students that require extra support in order to be successful.

More recently, I was the Delano Elementary (DES) Assistant Principal for the past two years.

I am both excited and honored to join the staff at Albertville Primary and look forward to meeting you and your child in the upcoming school year.
