Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things.
I share many roles and titles at Aversboro, but the core skills of critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication, are part of my teaching every day.
I have taught in Gifted Education for 19 years. I believe in not only providing academic challenges to gifted students, but also taking time to address the social and emotional needs of our gifted students. My goal as an educator is to help all students learn the skills that will make them successful problem solvers ready to face the challenges of elementary school and beyond.
I have been a Wake County educator since 2004. I am originally from Pennsylvania and called Philadelphia my home for 10 years. After moving to North Carolina in 2004, I began teaching at Aversboro and have stayed at Aversboro ever since! I have two daughters who have also attended Aversboro. Not only do I appreciate working with such a dedicated and committed staff, I feel fortunate that my children can attend such a caring and dynamic school!
I have worked in Wake County Public Schools for 16 years. I received my Masters in School Counseling from North Carolina Central University. I have been a school counselor at Aversboro Elementary for my entire school counseling career. I am also a National Board Certified School Counselor. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, reading, and traveling.
I love being the School Counselor at Aversboro Elementary. As the School Counselor, I enjoy working closely with students, teachers, administration, and parents. As the School Counselor, I am charged with many tasks. I provide support and resources to teachers and parents to support student academic, personal/social, as well as career development. I currently serve on the school's Leadership Team, School Improvement Team, Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports Team, and coordinate 504 Plans. My overall goal is to help students to acquire the necessary skills to be productive citizens.
I am Danielle Milligan, the ESL teacher at Aversboro ES. This is my fourth year as an ESL teacher and my first year at AES! I have taught for 11 years in Wake county and a total of 16 years between VA and NC. I live in Fuquay Varina with my family and have 2 children at FVHS. I am excited to know and teach your children this year!
I have been a teacher at Aversboro for the past eight years. I completed my undergraduate degree at North Carolina State University and I also received my Masters Degree from NC State. I have taught third grade for seven years. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and son, visiting with family and friends, cheering on the Wolfpack, and traveling!
This year I am taking on a new role at Aversboro Elementary. I am the IRT, Instructional Resource Teacher. My job is to work with teachers to provide resources and support to impact student learning. Part of my job is also being a Reading Intervention Teacher to provide students with additional literacy support. I love to watch students connect with their learning and take ownership of it.
