JANUARY TEACHER OF THE MONTH | DANI EWING

Ethridge Elementary BIC Teacher Dani Ewing was recognized as The Colony Chamber’s January Teacher of the Month.

Ethridge Elementary BIC Teacher Dani Ewing was recognized as The Colony Chamber/DATCU January Teacher of the Month. When Ms. Ewing was a first-year teacher at Ethridge Elementary two years ago, she embraced a challenging task to create a well-run, high-quality program for students with behavioral disorders. She works tirelessly, and her classroom feels as if it is taught by a veteran teacher. She is truly incredible and her students, who struggle with social skills in general, have really responded well to her guidance and direction.
