Biographical Information

As a resource teacher, Mrs. Danley is responsible for the organization, development, implementation and evaluation of the science curriculum for her school and her district. Under her direction, the school's resource lab is a place of constant activity where parents and community members are welcome to contribute to and assist ongoing investigation.

To promote science as a family pursuit, she publishes a monthly newsletter that includes science activities and local environmental developments.
