Ms. By'Shey W. McDonald

Greetings! I am the PGES Coach (Assistant Principal) at Coventry Oak Elementary here in Lexington, Kentucky.  Prior to being an administrator in FCPS I was also a classroom teacher and taught at Squires Elementary and Liberty Elementary in both primary and intermediate grades. I attended college at Morehead State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English/Communications and a focus in Creative Writing. In addition, I went on to receive a Master’s degree from University of Cumberlands as a Reading/Writing Specialist and then went on to obtain an Education Specialist Degree in the area of School Administration.

I am currently in year three of administration and I am committed to serving our students from elementary school and beyond! I am most proud of the relationships we’ve built with our students, families, and staff. Those relationships have and will continue to affirm my love of education! Go COMETS!
