Ms. Donna Stille teaches 3rd grade at the Blaine campus of CCS. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Dordt College in 1985. Since then, she has taken many courses to help her stay up to date and challenged, while looking for the best practices in teaching.
As a child, my ultimate favorite book was Ramona the Pest. I read every Beverly Cleary book I could get my hands on.
Favorite scripture verse:
Psalm 46:10: “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Favorite thing about working at CCS:
I enjoy sharing the wonder of who God is, his world and our place in it. I learn right along with my students as I am continually amazed by who God is and how he continues to reveal himself to us through his Word and creation.
Favorite learning activity:
I love math. There are many great truths in math that are fun to uncover with the students.
Favorite student quote:
This has nothing to do with those great “aha” moments which I absolutely love, but upon the arrival of my 50th birthday, one student exclaimed, “Oh, Mrs. Stille, you can’t be 50; you still look like you’re in your forties!”
Fun or fascinating fact:
I really have the best job: lifelong learning is a joy for me and I get to share this with kids!
