Mrs. Kimm Caldwell McDonald

I am so proud to be in Kershaw County School District where my dad and grandparents were born and raised! I am a passionate educator who taught for 21 years. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BAIS in Elementary Education. I have a Masters from AIU in Elementary Ed./Instructional Technology. I also have my ED.S from Capella University in Educational Leadership.

I am all around passionate about Education. I have been Teacher of the Year six times. I have provided staff development to teachers across the state, including presenting at Magnet School Conferences, Stem School Conferences, Avid Conferences, Mastery Connect Conferences, Social Studies State Conferences, and many more. I love spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel, play the piano, sing, write poetry, dance, create custom wedding pieces for individuals, cook, and work in my garden and yard at home.

I am a veteran Junior Beta Club Sponsor and believe that ALL children can learn when given the right support. My mission is to inspire every child to believe that Knowledge Is Power!!!  It is important that children are taught how to be 21st Century learners in a world where they can be successful both socially and academically. 

I am so glad and proud to join the Administrative staff at Jackson Elementary School!  I am proud to be a Jackson Bear!!!!
