Michelle McDonald has been a nurse for 20 years, the past seven in the school district, and three right here at Dunlap High School.

 

She graduated from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.  

 

Here are a couple questions that help peek into her personality:

 

Eagle Eye: What is the best part about your job?

 

McDonald: “It’s probably that everyday is different, so it keeps things interesting, there’s always surprises.”

 

Eagle Eye: What is the toughest part about your job?

 

“Well, I used to work in a hospital, and whenever there was an emergency,¨ says McDonald, ¨We had nurses, doctors, and people who you could rely on. But here at school, everyone looks to me.”

 

Eagle Eye: What is the most boring part about your job?

 

McDonald: “Being back in an office alone, well, it’s never alone. There’s always students, but it’s still kind of my own little world,” says McDonald.

         

Eagle Eye: What is your favorite movie and why?

 

McDonald: “‘Toy Story,´ it reminds me of my kids and takes me back to the good old days.”

 

Eagle Eye: If you could meet anyone from any point in time, who would it be?

 

McDonald: “I’d wanna meet my dad in his younger age. We lost him 10 years ago and I would want to see his life before I was there.”
