What sets this teacher apart from others?
What can I say Danielle Carter is an amazing woman, teacher, and friend. I feel she is not appreciated enough by her faculty, students and parents. For example Mrs Carter teaches chemistry 1&2, Biology 1, Human anatomy and physiology, Dynamics of the universe and is on the Prom committee. Even though she doesn’t have to she Helps students fill out Fafsa and college scholarships. Mrs. Carter is always available for the students if they need extra help with her homework assignments. Danielle expects a lot of her students and pushes them for excellence! Mrs Carter is a Superior Teacher and deserves this recognition!
What is one thing this teacher does that is not in their job description but they do it anyway to help you or your child?
Mrs. Carter is always available to lend an ear when my son needs someone to talk to. It’s not easy to find a teacher that You can trust and confide in.
