About Mr. Donis

My name is Mr. Donis.  I am thrilled to be your teacher for the upcoming school year.  Our school year will be filled with learning, fun, and wonderful experiences.

I have been teaching kindergarten for 14 years. I began my career in education as a teacher's assistant in LAUSD's Pre-K program (SRLDP).  It was that experience that guided me to choose kindergarten as my favorite grade level to teach.  Kindergarten is a special grade level to me because of the tremendous academic and social-emotional growth of students. I find it so rewarding and love coming to work each day; best job in the world!

Beyond the classroom, I love to spend time with my family and friends.  You can often find me with them at a fabulous restaurant; I love to eat.  Japanese and Italian are my favorite cuisines. I also like to experience the various cultural events in Los Angeles such as the Hollywood Bowl, art galleries, and festivals.

As we begin our school year together, I look forward to communicating and collaborating with you on both the academic and social-emotional needs of your student; it is a key to school success.  Always, feel free to contact me via the various communication platforms.

Let's get this school year started!  I cannot wait to meet you!
