Mrs. Andrea Donovan

Dear Families,


Welcome back, we are excited to be your child’s teacher for the 2015-2016 school year!  We are Melissa Levin and Andrea Donovan and we are a job share team in the 5th grade.  We graduated together from Michigan State University and have both been teaching for the past 12 years.  We have been working together as a team for the past 9 years; 5 years in a multi-age classroom at Ealy, 3 years as the Title 1 reading and math interventionist and last year as a 5th grade job share team here at Sheiko.  We work extremely well together and share very similar teaching styles and personality.


We would like to welcome you and your child to what we hope will be an exciting, productive and successful 5th grade experience.  We are committed to providing a learning environment that will develop and enhance strong academic skills, problem solving techniques and personal responsibility in your child.  Our goal is to provide a program where teaching meets the learning styles, interests and learning stages of all students.  We hope to instill a lifelong love for learning in your child while enabling each student to read his or her highest potential.


We will be exploring new topics and learning many new things this year.  Let’s all anticipate many exciting and rewarding experiences as our year progresses.  We look forward to sharing a year of exploration, discovery and progress.


We truly appreciate your concerns and support.  If you have any questions throughout the school year, please feel free to contact us at and  We are entering a partnership that I know will benefit our children.
