My name is Mrs. Oneida Haymond and this year marks 6 years that I’ve been teaching here at McDowell. I’ve taught first grade, third grade (this is my second year) and fourth grade for three years. I’m married with two beautiful, bright children named Omari and Laila. My favorite subjects are math, grammar and spelling. I love being a mom, a wife and spending time with family and close friends. I love to laugh and joke around, especially at work because it keeps me afloat. I graduated from Eastern Illinois University and I’m also an alumna of Kenwood Academy High School. Go Broncos!!
