My name is Donna Trunkwalter and this is my 15th year working in the Voorhees School District. This year I will be working as a Resource Teacher in Room 27. I am super excited about the 2023-2024 school year! It is my goal to make this a truly memorable year for my students and their families!
I am a dually certified teacher with a specialty in Writing Arts. I believe all students can learn and should learn in the least restrictive environment possible. I think it helps all students when children with special needs are included as much as possible in a general education setting. Some of the most important lessons taught during these times are life lessons like learning to be kind to each other, learning how to get along, and learning how to work together with people who may seem different, but share many similarities. I love to encourage lifelong learning and helping children develop a growth mindset.
I have a wonderful husband, two lovely daughters, one English son-in-law, and two beautiful grandchildren named Alastair and Saskia!! We all love the outdoors and try to do things together whenever we get the chance. We love camping in Acadia National Park in Maine, kayaking on New Jersey's beautiful lakes and hiking all over. Now that our daughters have grown up and moved to big cities, my husband and I get to spend time between NYC and Washington, D.C.
I love being a teacher because I love helping children gain confidence in their abilities. I love to see them feel proud of their accomplishments.
