    Hi there! My name is Danielle Jenkins and I am ecstatic to be a Silver Lake Shooting Star! This is my fifth year teaching and fourth group of first graders! After earning my B.S. in Elementary Education from LSU in 2013, I taught first grade for two years in my hometown, Slidell, Louisiana. Adventure was calling my name! I took the opportunity to move to southern California where I taught kindergarten and first grade in North County San Diego. I just recently landed in Grapevine! I am excited to join the SLE community and get to know your child! 

    Who can remember their elementary teachers and the impact they had on your lives? I strive to bring joy to each child and give them a love for learning! I hope to be the teacher they remember twenty years from now that inspired them to go after their dreams!

    First Grade is a year to be cherished! Their imagination and curiosity never ceases to amaze me. There's just something about teaching children to love reading. Sharing old favorites and finding new literature to read to my first graders is a passion of mine. 

    Reading, biking, rollerblading, yoga, and finding new creative ideas for my classroom are some of my interests. Mitch Albom is a favorite author of mine. I enjoy drinking a hot cup of Starbucks coffee, shopping at Target, bringing my 95 lb. black lab to the dog park, and exploring new places!
