Meet Our ABA Academy Teacher

The Oxford Center is excited to introduce Mrs. Zsuzsi McDonald as our teacher for the ABA Academy! Mrs. McDonald comes to us with ample expertise in traditional public schools, making her an excellent candidate to help prepare our child for the traditional classroom today!

History in Education

Zsuzsi McDonald is from Howell, Michigan, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Eastern Michigan University and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College. She is certified to teach Elementary Education. Zsuzsi devoted 30 years of dedicated, loyal, and outstanding service to the elementary students at Livonia Public Schools. She made many contributions to the educational profession and has touched the lives of countless students during her tenure with Livonia Public Schools.

She retired in 2021, where the Board of Education congratulated Zsuzsi on her years of service to the educational profession and expressed publicly its sincere appreciation. After retirement, she found her passion for working with children was too strong to stay away. Helping each child progress in all areas of their development-academic, social, language, and motor-is a challenge that she is honored to accept daily.

Mrs. McDonald is looking forward to continuing to follow her passion of working with children at The Oxford Center. She is a wonderful and caring teacher ready to help prepare your child for traditional school today!
