My name is Danielle R. Avila-Sedoris, I was born into a large family in southern California, raised in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and graduated from Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am a Catholic and my faith has played a substantial role in developing my character and moral values. I am also an athlete and participated in a number of sports during my high school years continuing on to the NCAA Division II Varsity Softball team at Eckerd College. My passion for science was first ignited in the seventh grade when an inspiring teacher introduced the subject in a fun and stimulating manner. Since then I have obtained my bachelors degree in Biology and continue to investigate topics of interest through research and at home experimentation. I have always respected education and have shared close bonds with many of my teachers and coaches.
I had the pleasure of teaching for Mad Science shortly after graduation and credit the experience for encouraging my pursuit of a career as a secondary science educator. Teaching is a field I respect, enjoy and believe can benefit from my talents. I look forward to beginning my career as a teacher and undergoing this next chapter in my life. What sets me apart from others is not only my optimism and hard work but also my investigative mind and enthusiasm for science and education. I hope to one day inspire my students in a way that my teachers have all inspired me and to impact their lives so that they may always see the value of learning.
