Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Danielle Cook
Hello and welcome to 6th Grade Social Studies!
My name is Ms. Cook and I am so excited to be returning to the wolfpack here at Trailside. I am a lifelong resident of Loudoun County. I graduated from Broad Run High School, where I was a teacher cadet, hoping to come back and work in the county that I grew to love. I am surrounded by a family of teachers. My father was a math teacher for many years in both Fairfax and Loudoun. Two of my sisters are also teachers in the county. Teaching in Loudoun is the "family business."
I graduated from Bridgewater College (the small school down the road from JMU) with a Bachelors degree in History and Political Science. I also played on the Women's Golf Team all four years and I was lucky enough to play alongside girls who led us to win the ODAC championship twice!
When im not working, I love to spend time with my family and be active, mostly by playing golf. I coach softball at Broad Run High School and golf at Tuscarora High School, so I am constantly running around with sports!
I'm thrilled for the 2019-2020 school year. I hope to challenge and engage my students in authentic learning. Let's make this year great!
