Mrs. Donika Patel-Massa


Hello, and welcome to third grade! My students call me Mrs. Massa, and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year!

I have a Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University with a double major in Psychology and Social Work.

This will be my sixth year as a classroom teacher and my third year at Stinson Elementary. I feel privileged to be part of an incredible community and district. 

I live in Plano with my husband and middle-school-aged son. My family and I love to read, travel, watch movies, and play board games. 

While I love to challenge my students academically, my favorite thing about being an educator is building relationships with my students and their families.

I look forward to an amazing year ahead!
