Chris MacDonald

Grade 6 Language Arts & Social Studies

At CRS, I love feeling empowered to create lessons that students will never forget by capitalizing on each student’s unique interests and strengths.

Chris joins Charles River School from Pollard Middle School in Needham, Mass., where he served as a literacy support teacher and instructional coach. In these roles, he developed an individualized curriculum for each reading and writing student and collaborated with math, science, social studies, and English teachers to develop new curricula, projects, and activities, and refine existing classroom practices. Previously, he was an Eighth-Grade English and Reading Teacher and an Eighth-Grade U.S. History and Civics Teacher at Jonas Clarke Middle School in Lexington, Mass. Chris was named Teacher of the Year in 2015 while serving as the English Department Chair, Seventh- and Eighth-Grade English and Reading Teacher, Teacher Mentor, Data Coach, and Webmaster at the Hillsboro Elementary/Middle School in Franklin, Tenn.
