    Are you ready for some 6th grade??

    My name is Mrs. Danielle Edwards and I will be your guide through the world of science for the 2018-2019 school year. This will be my 12th year in the Higley district and my 2nd year at Power Ranch.  For the 10 years prior to that, I taught at Chaparral Elementary where I moved between 5th and 6th grades.  For the last five years, I’ve been teaching 6th grade science and I have to say, it is the best subject and best grade level to teach.  I am really looking forward to my second 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 juniors 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 with you this year.  We will be learning about plants, human body systems, cells, weather, water, and energy.  We will also be integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math with some STEAM challenges that will require you to learn and practice the Engineering Design Process while you create solutions to problems.

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