After earning her Bachelor’s in Chemistry with a minor in Sociology from Western Kentucky University, she worked as an analytical and lead chemist at the Advanced Testing Laboratory, where she tested products from Proctor and Gamble, and has even presented her research at the French Embassy! As a service member for Americorps, Danielle designed lesson plans for 4th graders; she also planned and managed the robotics team for UPwardBound. Danielle will combine her scientific and educational background as a science teacher at Kairos.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
