My name is Donald Kearney and I have been the music teacher here for the past 9 years. I'm looking forward to another exciting year at Roosevelt Elementary!
Some interesting facts about me: I was born in Northampton, England and came to the United States at 2 years old. My mother is also a teacher. My father was in the Air Force. I've lived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Wilmington, Delaware; and Corpus Christi, Texas. San Antonio was the city I chose to attend college and I've lived here ever since!! I attended and graduated from Our Lady of the Lake University. That university is not too far from Roosevelt!
I love San Antonio and the Edgewood District! I've taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and even 6th grade. However, music is my favorite. Now, I get to work with Kinder- 5th grade everyday!! I've been honored by my coworkers as "Teacher of the Year" before, but truly, my students make me feel like a "Teacher of the Year" all the time!!
Our San Antonio Choral Societ did get to go Germany and Austria during our summer tour!! Those places were truly amazing!! I have pictures outside of my classroom of the wonderfull experience!!
I continue to serve in different church choirs as part of the choral group and as a soloist. I also love to be with family and friends. (My scrapbooks are full of them!!)
Let's have another amazing year!! GO FALCONS!!!
