Welcome! My name is Danielle Knight. I am a New Jersey (USA) high school special education ELA teacher. I have years of experience teaching small group instruction classes and in an inclusion classroom with regular education teaching partners. In addition to teaching small group instruction ELA, I facilitate our school's teacher cadets. I have years of experience teaching High School ELA inclusion. In the past, I've been a HS softball and girls tennis coach, musical director and choreographer, and drama director.
Pragmatism: Constructivist, differentiation, positive reinforcement. Show them you care.

My undergraduate degree is in Communication Studies from West Chester University, West Chester, PA. I earned my MA in 2004 in Education. Prior to teaching, I worked in online advertising and marketing for companies like (Radius) Comcast Communications and Time Warner Cable in New York City. I’ve also had the privilege of directing plays and musicals. Before having my sons, I coached girls’ softball and girls’ tennis. I have core-team training in Positive Behavior Support in Schools, Innovative Designs in Education (IDE), and I facilitated the Teacher Cadets program at our school.
About Me…Welcome! I am married to Mr. Knight who is an elementary physical education teacher. Together we have two little boys, ages 9 and 6. Everything I do is for my “Knights.” You can often see my sons during a Facebook Live event. And, if you’re lucky you’ll be entertained (they love to be on camera). Presenting Professional Development "There are so many things to explore when it comes to creating a classroom filled with opportunities for student success. I believe it starts with you." Teacher-ready and student-friendly. That’s what your technology strategy should look like. Don’t invent the wheel. You already have a teacher cabinet filled with activities and ideas. Now it is time to infuse technology into those activities. Thank you for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow my TPT store for updates on tutorials, tips, ideas, and resources.
