I am in my third year of teaching English 9 and Newspaper. I have previously taught Language Arts 11 and Creative Writing during student teaching. I also have experience in tutoring, newspaper editing and customer service.
I have high expectations of my kids and "put the work on them." I like to "guide by the side" and help kids discover their learning for themselves, with my prompting! I enjoy helping kids and making handouts and lessons clear, informative and interesting.

My name is Danielle Blumhardt and I have 2 cats named Scooter and Ghost. I also enjoy reading and baking! Coffee is my favorite part of the day. Edgar Allan Poe is my favorite American poet and author, but my favorite book is "A Tale for the Time Being" by Ruth Ozeki. Follow my teacher Instagram! @thepoeenglishteacher
