Hi my name is Danisha Santiago and I will be your Childs first grade teacher. I was born and raised in Bronx, New York and moved to North Carolina to start a family with my husband. I have lived in North Carolina for 14 years and it has truly become home to me. I started my teaching journey working in one of Charlotte's inner city schools for four years. Ive also worked as a Pre-K Exceptional Children’s Teacher Assistant in Bridgeston Elementary. Last year in Graham A. Braden I taught Kindergarten and I am now teaching first grade.
I am excited about this new school year and seeing past students continue to grow and flourish. I truly have a passion for teaching and working with children. I am lucky to say I am eager and grateful to come to work everyday and work with such wonderful students. I believe a students success is a team effort and I look forward to working with parents, family members and students to accomplish our goals.
