Are you ready for some 6th grade??

    My name is Mrs. Danielle Edwards and I will be your guide through the worlds of science and social studies for the 2019-2020 school year. This will be my 13th year in the Higley district and my 3rd year at Power Ranch.  For the years prior to that, I taught at Chaparral Elementary where I moved between 5th and 6th grades.   I am really looking forward to my third year as a Power Ranch Panther and am looking forward to getting to know you.

    A little more about me:  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.  After getting married and having four kids, I decided to go back to school to do what I always wanted to do-teach.

    My four boys are all Higley kids.  My two older boys went to Chaparral and graduated from Higley High.  One is currently working towards a software engineering degree at ASU and the other has returned from playing football and attending college in Colorado and is now working toward a degree in physical therapy at ASU.  My twins attended Chaparral as well and will be seniors at Higley High this year.  You can always catch me rooting them on at Higley High football games. 

    I am so excited to be doing hands-on science and social studies with you this year.  In science, we will be learning about plants, human body systems, cells, weather, water, and energy.   Social studies will have us travelling to globe to learn about ancient civilizations in Africa, Asia, and Europe and learn about geography along the way.

    I can’t wait to meet you! I’ll see you in July!
