Hello My Name Is
Hello! My name is Danean Davis. I received my Elementary and Early Childhood education degree/ certificate from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. After teaching for two years, I was surprised by the news that I would be having twins and decided to stay home for their early childhood years. I reentered the education field teaching in a small private school at which my own children attended. After seven years of teaching in the private sector, I began to work towards a master’s degree in elementary education with the intention of transitioning into public school education once more. This is my first year teaching at McAdory Elementary, and I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade. My vision for my classroom can be best explained by Sheila Tobias, who states: “There is a difference in not knowing and not knowing yet.” This is growth mindset in action and practice and is what you will hear on a daily basis in my classroom. This also speaks to the reason why I love teaching, helping children reach their full potential. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, my dogs, running, and reading.
