Welcome to my website! 
My name is  Eldonna Skahill, and this is my 19th year in the Van Meter School District.

My previous teaching experiences before coming to Van Meter included:
*ten years in 3rd grade in Greenfield
*one and a half years of subbing at all grade levels (K-12) in the Missouri Valley area
*one semester as an elementary special education teaching assistant in Missouri Valley
*seven years as a Pre-Kindergarten-8th grade counselor at St. Augustin School in Des Moines  

I grew up in the Redfield/Dexter/Earlham area, graduated from Dexfield High School and Central College in Pella, and received my Masters in Counseling from Iowa State University. 
During the 2017-18 school year, I will be teaching a 4th grade literacy block in the mornings, and serving as the Kdg.-5th grade elementary counselor in the afternoons. Mrs. Cindi Byrnes and I are co-homeroom teachers for one section of 4th grade.
