My name is Danielle Volanti and I am so excited to begin my teaching career as the 1st and 2nd grade learning specialist at Jahn. I graduated from Florida State with a Bachelor’s degree in English Education with endorsements in middle and high school. I worked at Blaine Elementary for the past six years as a substitute and Special Education Assistant. My experiences as a SECA inspired me to go back to school to get a Masters degree in Special Education at National Louis University. I love making a positive impact on students’ lives and making sure I am able to meet all my students’ individual academic and emotional needs. I believe all children have the ability to learn. I feel that every child can learn but not every child can learn in the same way or with the same methods. Therefore I will be a teacher who is in a constant cycle of growing and learning in accordance with my students’ needs.
