         Hello!  I'd like to introduce myself. 
    My name is Donetta Boothe.  I graduated from Mary Baldwin University in 1993.  I have worked for Augusta County  since graduation.  I have taught K, 1st, and 4th grade.  However, I have spent the past 25 years teaching first grade. Those 25 years have been some of the most rewarding years of my life! I love teaching first grade!   I have other "jobs", too.  I serve as the RTI team leader and team leader for first grade.  I am also the TLC coordinator.  I love staying busy!!
         When I'm not busy at school, I enjoy spending time with my WONDERFUL family! My husband and I just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary this summer. We have two fantastic children.   Our daughter finished her college degree from Mary Baldwin University in May. Due to Covid 19, we didn't get to see her graduate.  We were very sad about that. However, we are super proud of her.  She majored in biology. She loves working in the lab and being a scientist.  She got married in December 2016 and we were very excited to have our son in law join our family.  So technically, I have three fantastic children!  I also have a precious "granddog" named Mochi. She is a maltipoo and just the sweetest little thing.  Our son is our "techie" guy.  He loves retro/new video games, surfing on the computer, and creating things with his 3D printer.  He works in the electronics department at Target.  He is my "lifesaver" when it comes to all things "computer"! He teaches me new things daily and keeps me "up to date" on everything "techie".  My husband and I are still amazed at how quickly our children grew up!!  It seems like yesterday that they were just starting first grade! Sigh!! Our family just wouldn't be complete without our four legged babies.  We have three dogs.  Our littlest baby is Molly.  She likes to tell the bigger dogs what to do.  She thinks she is the boss.  It's a good thing that our bigger dogs, Bella and Sasha, are so patient and gentle.  These three definitely make our family perfect!

        My family loves visiting Disney World! It is our favorite vacation spot. We have been there over 12 times! I always feel six years old, again, when I go to Disney World.  I always have a wonderful experience!  I love creating special memories with my family! I love Disney at Christmas time! It is so beautiful!  My favorite Disney character is Tinkerbell.  Did you know that a real Tinkerbell flies from the top of Cinderella's castle every night before the fireworks display at the Magic Kingdom?  Cool, huh?!
         In my  free time I like taking photos, reading, crafting, antique shopping, and "hanging out" with my family!  My family is very special to me.  We have lots of fun adventures together! We also love experiencing lots of different cultures, especially the food!  We love cooking together in the kitchen and trying to recreate some of our new found favorite dishes from around the world.  I am learning to "like" cooking for the first time in 27 years of marriage! Usually my husband does all of the cooking at our house! My daughter is also a wonderful cook. Her dad taught her well. Lucky me! We love to laugh and have a great time together.
