Danielle McFarland, Math Interventionist

My name is Danielle McFarland, and I am the Math Interventionist for Goodman Elementary. In 2006, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies at Stephen F. Austin State University. I have worked in education for 11 years, serving as an Elementary Teacher, Curriculum Specialist, and now an Interventionist. My passion for children and to help others led me to the this profession. The privilege of having the opportunity to positively influence and be a part of students’ lifelong learning is the reason I stay. I truly believe with support all students are capable of reaching their highest potential.

 Outside of work I am also passionate about music, cooking, and of course being a mother of two, ages 3 and 4. I would like to believe teaching helped prepare me for parenthood, while parenthood has enhanced my insight and empathy as an educator. I am very honored to be a part of the Goodman Owl Nation and look forward to having a productive year.
