This will be Dana's second year working at EEC. When her daughter was in Pre-K at EEC she was spending so much time co-oping that it naturally felt like the right time to go back to teaching after spending almost 7 years with her 3 kids at home. It was just an extra bonus being able to spend that precious time with her daughter as both teacher and mom.
Dana started her teaching career here in Arizona as a second grade teacher. She also taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade at a Montessori Elementary school. She spent several years exploring the country, living in different cities with her husband where she taught in many different capacities including serving as an AmeriCorps member helping to run a SUN community school in Portland, Oregon. She even spent a few seasons teaching 3 and 4 year olds how to snow ski.
Dana was born and raised in Phoenix. She has known her husband since kindergarten! They have 3 children and one kitten who thinks she’s a dog. When not at school Dana loves to travel any and everywhere.
