• I joined the Smart’s Mill Middle School team in August of 2020. I lives in Leesburg with my husband and two dogs, Sarge and Sukia. I am originally from New Jersey, and have only been living in Virginia since early 2020. If you are walking or driving on King Street in the evenings or weekend mornings you are likely to catch a glimpse, just look for the floofy husky! 


    I have been a teacher since 2012 and through a variety of positions have always managed to find my way into math classes. I am a graduate of Lock Haven University and Bloomsburg University, both of which are small state schools in Pennsylvania. I am also a proud Nationally Board Certified Teacher. 


    Outside of school, I enjoy reading and cooking. I am obsessed with dinosaurs and owls and love everything about them as seen in my classroom decorations and online courses. My favorite season is Fall because it is when all of the most exciting events happen from birthdays (mine, my husband’s, and my dad’s) to my wedding anniversary!

    I can be reached by e-mail danielle.bottesch@lcps.org or through direct messaging on Schoology.
