My name is Carly McDonald and I am a sophomore at Franciscan University. I am an Early Childhood Education major and someday hope to teach fourth or fifth grade. I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember because I have had many teachers growing up that I loved and have inspired me. I am from a small town in Minnesota named New Market. I am the oldest of five kids and I love spending time with my family. I am on the lacrosse team here at Franciscan and I love leaving everything on the field with my teammates. After graduating, I look forward to moving back to Minnesota to teach and be close to my family.
