Mrs. Donika Patel-Massa
Hello, and welcome to fifth grade! My students call me Mrs. Massa, and I am thrilled to be teaching at Stinson Elementary this year!
I know last year was different from all previous years, and there are still uncertainties as we head into the new school year, but I will do my best to support your child as we navigate the waters together.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers University and taught at Frisco ISD for three years after completing my student-teaching experience at Shepard Elementary in Plano. I loved my previous campus, but as a Plano resident and parent, I am looking forward to being part of the PISD family once again.
I am married to a wonderful, former U.S. Marine turned data center operations manager and am a proud mom of an extremely kind and precocious boy who will also be in 5th grade this year at Mathews Elementary. My family and I love to read, travel, watch movies, try new foods, and play board games.
My favorite thing about being a teacher is building relationships with my students and families. I can’t wait to get to know your sweet child and family! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts-Artistotle
