Kate MacDonald

My name is Kate MacDonald and I am the school social worker and 504 coordinator at Eagle Creek Elementary School. I joined the Eagle Creek team in April 2022. I have worked as a school social worker in public schools as well as in an education service collaborative. I have curated my career to work in a variety of settings, both public and private, to better understand the systems my clients have to navigate.  The last 13 years, concentrating on my clinical work and  providing psychotherapy to individuals and families.  I also provide mental health professional consultation for a mobile crisis team. 
 
My role at Eagle Creek Elementary includes involvement with our special education team.  Supporting both students and parents in the special education process; a core member of our PBIS team to help support a positive school climate for all staff and students.  I work with students in the school, educating and teaching individual and group interventions to support their social/emotional development; tracking and supporting attendance for all students; providing support and resources for parents/guardians to best support their students; plan and develop all 504 plans for students; and supporting teachers, staff and administration.  
 
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, barefoot hiking, musical pursuits, painting, drawing, and mindfulness practices. 
 
I am grateful for the experience of working within the Shakopee School system and look forward to continued positive growth.
