Mrs. Colleen Donnelly

Mrs. Donnelly has been teaching at Hillside Elementary School since September 2010.  She loves that in the Library Media Center she gets to teach children about books and information science, or how to find quality sources of information.  This is one of the most important skills that modern students can have!    

Mrs. Donnelly has Bachelor's Degrees in English and Secondary Education from The College of New Jersey; she taught English at Sparta High School while earning a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science from Rutgers University.  She was honored to be chosen as Hillside's Teacher of the Year 2016-2017.    

At home, Mrs. Donnelly has two children: Brogan and Kiera, whom she loves to spend time with reading and playing.  She really enjoys being with her family and friends.  Mrs. Donnelly feels so fortunate to have the privilege of teaching at Hillside: the staff is truly incredible and the students make her smile every day.  Thank you for the opportunity to teach your children!
