She’s been teaching for over 30 years. After struggling with God, she graduated from Union College with a Bachelor of Science in Education and from the University of Phoenix with a Master’s in Technology in Education. With a love for learning, teaching was definitely something she could excel at. She is Ridgecrest Adventist Elementary Principal and 5th -8th grade teacher. Nancy Danelson, known to most as simply Ms. D.
She is a native to California having grown up in Southern California her entire young life. She went to Newbury Park Academy and later went to Union College. Growing up Adventist, her relationship with God has only blossomed bigger, brighter every day through the smiles of the children she helps grow closer to God and learn more about our world. Her favorite thing is to hear back from past students about how well they are doing and how close to God they are because she was part of their lives.
Aside from teaching, Ms. D loves to camp. Camping takes her away from the hustle and bustle of life to somewhere amazing, somewhere created by God instead of man, nature. In what little free time she has, she loves to read. In her words, she loves reading “because it takes me to so many different places and times,” a dream come true for a teacher who puts everything into helping her students grow.
