Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Danielle Kuni and I'm excited to be part of the 7th grade U.S. History team here at Trailside Middle School. I enjoy coming to work every day and am inspired by our thoughtful and inquisitive students. I try to make learning fun with engaging and interactive lessons, but I also strive to challenge students to view historical content through various lenses. I hope this will leave them with a deeper understanding of the material while developing their ability to think critically. I try to make a positive impact on students every day, whether through an interesting discussion about history, asking about their day, or just with a kind word and a smile.
I received my master's degree in secondary education with an endorsement in middle school social studies and my undergraduate degree in finance. When I'm not at school I'm with my husband and two daughters. My oldest, Emily, is in tenth grade and my younger daughter, Madison, is in ninth. Lately, most of our time is spent at one of their sporting events, but we also enjoy going to the movies and theater productions, biking and hiking, and watching football. Since we recently moved from Florida, we're hoping to do some skiing this winter also!
I feel very lucky to be part of the Trailside team and hope to leave a positive trail here! Go Timberwolves!
