About Danai


Bio

I received my BA in History from Florida Atlantic University. After a few years, I decided to go back to school for my PhD in History. I applied and was accepted to Florida International University and was awarded a teaching assistantship. Over the course of my first year, I realized that I enjoyed teaching and supporting students much more than doing research. I received my MA in U.S. History, and have been teaching ever since. I love it.

My experience is wide-ranging. For several years,...

I received my BA in History from Florida Atlantic University. After a few years, I decided to go back to school for my PhD in History. I applied and was accepted to Florida International University and was awarded a teaching assistantship. Over the course of my first year, I realized that I enjoyed teaching and supporting students much more than doing research. I received my MA in U.S. History, and have been teaching ever since. I love it.

My experience is wide-ranging. For several years, I taught at a school that served many low-income minority families, and many students struggled with reading and organizational skills. I let my students where they were at, built strong relationships, and worked hard to help them improve their reading analysis, writing, and historical reasoning skills as both a regular US History teacher and a dual enrollment US History teacher. My students performed well on state assessments.

I transferred to a school several years ago that was very different; a school ranked among the top five high schools in the nation several years in a row by U.S. News and World Report and Niche; and I began the teach AP US History, AP US Government and Politics, and AP Macroeconomics. While many of my students came in with much stronger skills, many still need a lot of support to keep up with the rigors of their all AP and dual enrollment curriculum. Luckily, at this school, teachers and students are provided time for tutoring during the school day. I tutor my students for 10 hours a week individually and in small group sessions.

My goal every year is to cultivate a class environment where students feel comfortable taking risks while working together and supporting one another. It is my pedagogical belief that deep learning follows from this foundation. In tutoring, I leverage students skills to help them build confidence.

Working individually with students on their particular needs is very rewarding for me.
