Mrs. McDaniel

Hello all! Ny name is Heather McDaniel and this is my first year teaching at Windcrest Elementary. I am very excited to be a part of the Windcrest Family. Before I went back to school to finish my education, I taught pre-k for two years. I graduated from Texas Tech University Magna Cum Laude and a Bachelor of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies. I am certified in Early Childhood-6th grade with a specilization certification in teaching English as a Second Language. Prior to this year, I have had the privelidge of working with 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade this year. This year will come with similar challenges as last year but we will work together and try to find the good in all situations. I want my students to know that I believe in them 100% and they can achieve anything they put their minds to. I will be there to support them every step of the way. One of my favorite quotes by Rita Pierson is, " Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be." 

A Little About Me 

I have been married to my husband for 11 years. We have two beautiful children, Brynnley and Braxton. Brynnley is 10 and she is in the fifth grade this year. Braxton is 4 and will complete his last year of pre-k this year. We are animal lovers and we have A LOT. Two dogs, three cats, and two bearded dragons. I like to do anything crafty (paint, color, sketch, knit, crochet). I love to be active and be outdoors. Spending time with my family is my favorite thing to do. We love spending time together at the beach when we can. I look forward to getting to know my students and families this year. Please dont hesistate to reach out if you have any concerns or questions! :]
