Danny is new to the Centennial CREW after finishing his student teaching here to end last year. After 3.5 years of student teaching (much of which was during the pandemic), he could not be more enthusiastic about having his own CREW. He is from Saint Louis, Missouri, and moved out to Denver to be near the mountains. He is always up for adventures, and Colorado is a perfect place to seek those out. After graduating from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Danny obtained his masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Denver. He loves being in the mountains, or being active in other ways such as sports. Danny hopes to create a welcoming and accepting classroom environment that helps learners achieve and succeed to the best of their abilities. His goal as a teacher is to try to create students who are lifelong learners that can one day teach themselves to do whatever it is they want to in this world.
