My name is Donna Trunkwalter and this is my 14th year working in the Voorhees School District. This year I will be working with Ms. Claudia Kitlas in Room 17. We are both super excited about the 2022-2023 school year! We are dedicated to making this a truly memorable year for our 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 terrific daughters, one English son-in-law, and a beautiful grandson named Alastair!! We are expecting a granddaughter later this month. 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..
