My name is Danielle Stern and I am working towards a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin – Platteville. I am originally from West Bend, WI. I enjoy spending time with my family and reading. I also like to write poetry. After I graduate, I will return to the West Bend area, and hope to teach in the area after student teaching in Fall 2016. I chose to become a teacher because I wanted to give back to others and the community. I also wanted to positively impact the lives of others the way that some of my previous teachers impacted my life.
