Hello! My name is Danyel Brinkmeyer and this is my first teaching Essential Skills at William Harris Elementary School and my seventh year teaching. I feel very lucky to be part of this school. It is an amazing place to work!
I am orginaly from the Northern Illinois area. I grew up in Stillman Valley, Illinois and received a Bachelor of Science in Special Education from Western Illinois University. After graduating, I moved to the Decatur Area. I taught in the resource setting prior to moving to Harris. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I especially love every moment I can spend with my nephew.
In my classroom, I strive to create a caring, safe, and fun learning environment. We love to get a little messy and encourage our students to experience many different things. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I look forward to having a successful school year!
