Mrs. Margaret McDaniel
I am excited to kick off a new year in GT! I want to welcome all of my new and returning students and their families to my classroom.
I was born in Staten Island, New York, but got to Texas as soon as I could. After graduating from the University of Texas in 1987 with a BBA in Finance, I worked in the corporate world for several years before deciding to pursue a career in education. In 2012, I was honored with the District Teacher of the Year and Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching for Southside ISD. I have taught fourth grade, GT K-5, GT summer camp, as well as sponsored Student Council, Drama Club, Knitting Club, Cooking Club, Spelling Bee and 3D Printing Club.
My goal for your child is to be a happy life long learner, to remain curious, and to have fun in the learning process of a kind, student centered classroom.
I wish to embark on an adventure in creativity, accelerated learning, mastery of complex processes and problem solving.
I can't wait to begin our learning adventure together this year!
