Danner, Kaylie - 2nd Grade


Kaylie Dean Danner

My Name is Kaylie Dean Danner and I am a new 2nd grade teacher! I went to school at Western Carolina University for a degree in Health and Physical education k-12.  After graduating I worked at Black Mountain Primary as an assistant, both in title one, throughout the school, and most recently in 1st grade!  I drove the busses as a substitute driver and often had an opportunity to ride them as a TSA.  What a thrill!  I learned so much at my time at BMP and as a result added k-6 education to my license and I am so glad I did. 
I grew up on a farm, with lots of dogs, chickens, goats, and cows.  Currently my parents just have cows, but are planning on goats again. I enjoy any chance I get to go home to see and help them! I have one younger brother who serves in the US Airforce and has just been stationed in California so a trip out west is coming! I met my husband Derek at Western, and we have been fortunate enough to travel together.  We have been to Wales, where we got engaged, Scotland, and England.  I have also been to Spain, Italy, and the Netherlands, where I have family.  

I currently live with my 2 cats, Thomas and Independence (Indi for short), my pet fish Harrison Jones, and my supporting husband Derek.
I cannot wait to work with the second grade team as well as the kids. It is going to be a fantastic year of reading, writing, math, and lots of learning all around!
