Parker, Danielle (Science)

Hello and welcome to my page! I am so excited to be a part of the NDA family this year. I am looking forward to getting to know all of my students as we explore the world around us through science. 

This will be my 7th year teaching science, but I've had some other awesome careers too! I was a vet tech for over 15 years, and I was an animal trainer/keeper at the Phoenix zoo for 4 years. During that time, I received my B.S. in Environmental Science from UNCA.  But, it was at the zoo that I discovered my love for teaching science and decided to pursue that path. I went back to school and received my M.A.T. in Comprehensive Science and Biology from WCU. Through teaching, I have been able to share my love of science, the environment, and wildlife with my students. 

In my spare time, I love to hike, read, and in general, explore the world around me!
