My name is Michelia McDonald, Principal of Excelsior Charter Schools, Phelan Campus. This is my 12th year with Excelsior and 14th year in education. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor of Science degree in Child and Adolescent Development, and where I earned my teaching credential. I began teaching at a local charter school for two years before hiring with Excelsior Charter Schools as a long-term facilitator and math instructor for the inaugural year of the Phelan Campus. I began working as the principal of the Phelan campus in 2018 where I have dedicated my career to providing a safe, quality alternative education option for families of the Phelan, Pinon Hills, and Wrightwood communities.
