Special Education/Collaboration Teacher
Meece Middle School 210 Barnett St.
Somerset, Ky 42501
My name is Donnie Combs, I am currently a Special Education teacher here at Meece Middle school, and I would have to say I have the best job ever. I genuinely look forward to coming to work every day. Before teaching, I had several other jobs, but I recently worked for a coal company in Eastern Kentucky for around 11 years. Outside of education, I also run a contracting business stationed out of Jamestown, Kentucky, but primarily in the Somerset area. We do lawn care, snow removal, and other contract labor. I started working at around 15, helping build houses and working two jobs to make it through college. I am no stranger to hard work, and I push this on my students. With the right opportunity, the right mindset, and the right amount of effort, everyone can succeed. With that said, I would like to welcome everyone back. I also would like to thank you, the parents, for entrusting me to help further your child's education and let you know I look forward to working with each of you. Together with your help, parents, we can change the world one child at a time.
