Hi! My name is Danielle Michalizysen (Miss M) and I am so excited to be your teacher this year!!!
The Cave Creek District feels like home to me. I am a former Desert Arroyo Middle School Rattler and a Cactus Shadows High School Falcon! During my senior year of high school, I worked as a teen aide at the Desert Willow Elementary School Roadrunner Kid's Club. I student taught in 5th grade here at Desert Sun Academy and finished my student teaching in a Resource Room at Black Mountain Elementary School. This will be my fifth year teaching!
I attended Northern Arizona University (Go Lumberjacks!) and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Special Education.
Here is a little information about me: I was born in New Jersey, grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Arizona when I was 11 years old. I have a twin brother and a younger sister; we are all very close and always hang out together. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher! Outside of the classroom, I like to live a healthy lifestyle and workout at Orangetheory Fitness! I love to watch sports and all of my favorite teams are from my home state of New Jersey (Football = New York Giants, Hockey = New Jersey Devils, Baseball = New York Mets). I love a good thrill, and recently crossed Skydiving off my bucket list!!
