Hi- my name is Dani Reynolds and I am so excited to be teaching 1st Grade this year.  I live nearby in Arvada with my husband and two big kiddos, Riley and Brody. We have been back in CO for about 3 years now after working and traveling around the US and abroad in Asia. I have a BS in Professional Child Development and a BS in Elementary Education and have been working with children for over 25 years. I love being outside with my family, friends and two dogs! 


When I’m not in school I can be found either on a boat, on a bike or on a trail!  I love rafting and kayaking, but prefer to make my own waves on a Dragon Boat. I’ve been racing Dragon Boats since I first picked up a paddle in China and am hooked. I’m excited to share my love of the outdoors and physical activity with my 1st grade friends.  I feel so fortunate to have found a place to teach that shares my values of the joy that nature and adventure can bring.
