Mrs. Danielle Sabato
Hi! My name is Danielle Sabato. This is my 17th year of teaching at Upper Merion. This year I will be teaching Geometry and Statistics and Math Modeling (SAMM). Additionally, I am a member of the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) core team and a new member of the Upper Merion Area Assistance Team (UMAAT). I look forward to meeting you and collaborating throughout this school year. If you have any questions or just want to reach out, please feel free to use my contact information above.
I have never stopped learning, and I am constantly on the lookout for educational experiences that will help me to best serve my students and the wider school community. Toward that end, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from Chestnut Hill College in 2003, after which time I taught eighth grade briefly at Sacred Heart in Royersford. I began teaching at Upper Merion in 2005 and returned to Arcadia University to pursue my Master's Degree in Mathematics Education, which I completed in 2008.
Over the years, I have sought out opportunities to cultivate my skills in technology integration and to continually improve upon my teaching practice. I was selected as a Keystone Technology Innovator (KTI) star in 2019 and have participated in KTI workshops (including their online offerings) over the past couple of years. The skills I learned while attending these professional development sessions will certainly help me to navigate this school year, and they have helped me focus on my broader interests as well. Delving further into the digital landscape, I have introduced "Genius Hour" into my SAMM classes in order to give my students a chance to design and carry out projects born of their own personal interest, and I spent the previous school year blogging about the experience, which has become a pastime I greatly enjoy. I am also passionate about school culture and creating a socially equitable learning environment, which has taken me down pathways in social emotional learning and racial justice.
