Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Doneta Handley


          I’m Doneta Handley and I have been blessed to work at Otterville R-VI for 20 plus years. Before I was a teacher I worked at Wal-Mart. I enjoy my time at Otterville. I have taught 4th grade, Social Studies, Phonics, Spelling, Reading Keyboarding and helping in Preschool. I wear many hats. My main focus is the Library. I also teach Personal Finance.  I will also have 2 study halls this year.  This includes getting every student from Kindergarten to 6th grade on the computers, bookmobile, book fair, Bikes for Books, Buddy Bags, and the PDC committee are also my responsibilities.  This makes for some exciting days.

          My home life is also exciting. I have been married for 37 plus years. I never know who will be at my house when I go home. My husband is the founder of, Triple Threat Custom Rods. There is always someone new visiting because of the custom fishing rods he makes. I have 2 grown boys, a daughter in-law and a beautiful granddaughter. They help keep me grounded.

          I enjoy and learn from my students daily. I will finish with a saying by the late Mr. Schilb, one of my sons most inspirational teacher always said. It is Never too late to do the right thing.
