Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Danielle Kuni and I'm proud to be part of the 8th-grade Civics and Economics team here at Trailside Middle School. I love coming to work every day and am inspired by our thoughtful and inquisitive students! I hope to make learning fun with engaging and interactive lessons. I also want to help students view content through different lenses so they develop perspective and a deeper understanding of the material. I try to make a positive impact on students every day; whether through interesting discussions, 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 a high-school senior and my younger daughter, Madison, is in eleventh grade.
I know everyone is anxious about distance learning, but let me assure you we are preparing an exciting and interactive online curriculum. I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all! I can't wait to jump into this year's relevant, challenging, and hopefully inspiring Civics content. I am available via email every day, will have office hours weekly, and will get to know you all during our whole-class and small-group synchronous meetings.
I feel very lucky to be part of the Trailside team and hope to leave a positive impact! Go Timberwolves!
