Ms. Danielle Yocum

Welcome to 4th grade! Please let me introduce myself-

After graduating high school in western New York, I attended Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida. Upon completing my four years, I received two degrees, the first in Elementary Education (1-6) and the other in Specific Learning Disabilities (K-12).

My love of St. Augustine, Florida through my college years had me plant my roots in the historic and beautiful town upon graduation.  I began my teaching journey at a private Catholic School in the very heart of the historic district.  While teaching first grade for six years, I also created and built a cheerleading program for the 4-8 graders.

Moving to the public-school system in a neighboring county, I jumped into teaching fourth grade.  Of the eight years I spend there, the last four had me focused on math and science with a team-teacher teaching ELA and Social Studies.  

With 14 wonderful years of teaching in Florida under my belt, I took a two-year break.  Along with the passing of my father, which in itself was a life-altering event, an opportunity arose that allowed me to expand my personal education, growth, and experiences.  I moved to California and began working for a luxury sports car racing team, specializing in Porsche, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin.  That was truly an adventure I will treasure for a lifetime. 

Missing my family on the east coast as well as the teaching profession, the move was made here, to eastern North Carolina.  I moved from Northwoods Elementary School to Dixon Elemetary School (Go Bulldogs!) last year and will now begin my 17th year as an educator.  Words cannot express the excitement I feel!
