My name is Mrs. Danielle Edwards and I will be your guide through the world of social studies for this school year. I've been in the Higley district for all of my career and have been at Power Ranch the last several years. Before that, I taught at Chaparral Elementary where I moved between 5th and 6th grades. I am really looking forward to another year as a Power Ranch Panther and am looking forward to getting to know you.
I moved to Arizona right before I started 8th grade to a little town on the Colorado River called Lake Havasu City. Coming from a small town in Illinois to 115 degrees was a big shock and-major mental note to my mom-never move to Arizona in July! I attended Northern Arizona University and Louisiana State University, so I am a Tiger fan for life. After graduating with a degree in advertising, I worked for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Disney on Ice.
My four boys are all Higley kids. One has a software engineering certification and the other has returned from playing football and attending college in Colorado and is a physical therapy assistant. My twins attended Chaparral as well and graduated from Higley High. One is attending college to be a forensic psychologist, and the other is working towards being a mechanic.
