Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Danielle Tollis! I am starting my third year as a highland husky! I am overjoyed to be a part of the Kindergarten team. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in December 2018 with my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I am very excited to be working in the Highland community, as I am originally from a small community myself. I am passionate about social and emotional development in young children. I believe in order to have a successful year in Kindergarten, children must have a solid foundation when it comes to their social skills and emotional skills. I look forward to building a strong relationship with all of my students and their families. As they say, "Team work makes the dream work!" (:
Over the school year, I will create a safe and welcoming environment where students can learn among their peers. We will have a fun-filledjourney; practicing the most important foundational skills in academics and learning how to be a kind friend. Through our journey we will be learning all the letters and their sounds, math skills, how to read and write, and much more!
I am looking forward to getting to know your Kindergartners and help them along their path of learning!
