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 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 and Spelling Bee. 

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!
