Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Danielle Ford. I am so honored to have the opportunity to be at teacher at such an amazing district!
This is my second 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 "aha!", when they finally understand something new or challenging. It is these moments that help children believe they can continue to grow and conquer harder challenges. I hope to strengthen every child's self-esteem, attitude, and belief in themselves this first year of school.
Thank you for trusting me to help your child shine bright this year!
