Mrs. Donna Pavelka

Welcome to 2nd Grade at Saraland Elementary School. I graduated from the University of South Alabama in Elementary Education in 1997 and obtained my Master's Degree from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2001. I achieved National Board Certification in 2014. I am proud to teach in the same community that I live in and honored to be part of this historic school system. This is the start of my 25th year of teaching.

I married my high school sweetheart and have been happily married since 1996. My daughter Savanna is a Saraland Graduate and is attending The Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah Georgia for a degree in Illustration. I guess it was destined for Savanna to be in Savannah!!

I attend Destination Church where I love to be a part of the praise and worship team. 

Second Grade is such a special year. Each student's independence is blossoming along with their love of learning!

"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child."
