My name is Danielle Young and I am excited to be at Thornton Middle School this year! This will be my second year teaching in Adams 12 and first year at Thornton Middle. I am originally from California and came to Colorado for college. I graduated in 2014 with my bachelor's degree in history from the University of Colorado at Boulder and have recently earned my master's degree in special education from Regis University. Away from the classroom, I love to spend time with my family, friends and dog, read a good book, and love to get outside to enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. If I'm not doing one of those things, then you can catch me cheering on the Buffs! I look forward to getting to know you all and am excited to have a great year together!
