Welcome to Mrs. McDaniel's online classroom.
My name is Melissa McDaniel, I am the wife to Cody McDaniel and the mother to two wonderful daughters. I have been a Special Education teacher for 11 years and have worked as a Special Education Director and teacher since joining the Smithville Public School District two years ago. In my 11 years of teaching I have been fortunate to work with many grades levels: 3yr olds - 8th grade. I have had wonderful experiences teaching all grades levels including in my first 4 years of teaching that involved working in a life skills classroom for grades Kdg-6th where I worked with children with Down syndrome, Autism, Tramatic Brain Injury, and Intellectual Disabilities, the next 5 years of teaching I worked at a Primary School where I worked with grades 3yr old- 2nd. During this time I worked primarily with children who had developmental delays and specific learning disabilites.
