Danielle is originally from Vancouver, Canada, and has taught in her home province of British Columbia, the sunny island of Geoje, South Korea, the historical city of Vienna, Austria, and now calls The Netherlands home. Danielle has been teaching secondary level Social Studies and English internationally for eight years, and has experience with Fieldwork Education’s IMYC, and the IBO’s MYP and DP. Under her leadership, the International School of Koje in South Korea became the first IMYC Accredited School. Prior to making the leap to international education, Danielle spent five years in research in Indigenous education at a provincial level in British Columbia.
This is Danielle's third year at NAISR and her second as Head of IMYC. She is keen to develop the IMYC further in the context of NAISR and to promote learning which supports the '5 Needs of the Adolescent Brain,' the scientific and educational research underpinning the IMYC.
In addition to teaching, Danielle is an experienced associate trainer and accreditor for Fieldwork Education. Since 2018, Danielle has trained more than 15 schools globally, and has written professional learning materials to support schools to implement the IMYC.
