    My name is Danyelle Burgess.  I am so excited to be teaching first grade at Silver Lake Elementary!!  I look forward to teaching your child this year!  We are going to have a fun year of learning and growing!!  Let me tell you a little about myself...  I graduated from University of North Texas with my degree in elementary education.  I have taught first grade, third grade, and worked in special education.  Brian and I have three boys. Braxton is in tenth grade, Blake is in eighth grade, and Bryson is in fifth grade.  My children have all attended Silver Lake Elementary.   I have been a parent, volunteer, room parent, paraprofessional in Special Education, and classroom teacher at Silver Lake Elementary.   I love our school!!!  I look forward to this chapter in my life as I continue to pursue my passion…teaching and blessing the lives of children.

    Why I choose teaching....

    I became a teacher to help children grow both educationally and emotionally.  I want my students to have a better self-esteem and confidence level after they have been in my classroom.  I want my students to know that they are smart and can achieve anything they set their mind on doing.  I hope to teach my students to have an optimistic and positive view of life.  The love of learning is something I want to pass on to my students.
