Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Danielle Ford. I am so honored to have the opportunity to teach your child at such an amazing district!
This is my first year as a kindergarten teacher. I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and a Masters in Education with a focus on teaching. I am ESL and teaching certified. I have done tutoring and substitute teaching in the past. I also taught children of all ages gymnastics for fourteen years. I still teach gymnastics choreography in the summer. Beyond teaching, I have a husband, a son, and three dogs. I love music, painting, books, and building things.
I have worked with children my whole life and am driven by their successes. My favorite moments of teaching are when they conquer a battle or struggle academically and they have that epiphany, or moment of "ahaha!", and they finally understand something. That moment is what helps them believe they can continue to grow and learn and conquer harder challenges. I hope to strengthen your child's self-esteem, attitude, and belief in themselves this first year of school.
Thank you for trusting me to help your child become the best they can be.
