Ms. Maggie McDaniel
I am so excited to be your child's science teacher this 2016-17 school year. It might help you get to know me by knowing a little information about my background. I come from a family with a military background. My father was in the Air Force, my older brother, the Marines, and I taught on an Army Post for my first 22 years. I have one younger brother that is in Colorado Springs and he works for Apple. I attended 9 schools between Kindergarten and graduation, which allowed me to experience first hand what works in education and what doesn't. I make it my daily goal to apply that knowledge to my instruction.
My undergraduate degree is in elementary education and my MA is in Special Education. I have taught 2nd through 5th grade and have taught all of the academic subjects. I stepped out of the regular classroom setting for seven years when I was given the opportunity to design and run a Crisis Intervention program. I have also worked with students in either temporary psychiatric placement or juvenile detention. Regardless of the job location, I have seen students develop and demonstrate amazing skills. I do believe that every child can achieve and I love the challenge of helping them discover their gifts.
