Congratulations to Danielle Wais, High School Social Studies Teacher and recipient of the March Stronger Together Award

Congratulations to Danielle Wais, High School Social Studies Teacher and recipient of the March Stronger Together Award. When you enter Ms. Wais’s classroom you feel a sense of calming learning environment. In this classroom, all are welcomed, challenged and supported. She requires students to dig deeper and connects classroom material to real world situations that students will be facing after graduation. Ms. Wais has designed and implemented several courses about civic activism and government including Government and Society, Advanced Placement Government and Contemporary Global Issues. 

Outside of the classroom Ms. Wais is our fearless leader for spirit initiatives including Flurry Fest, Student Council, Homecoming  and more! She makes spirit weeks exist at Arcadia High School. These events are always well planned and inclusive for all to participate in. 

Ms. Wais has been a mentor to new staff and continues to foster positive relationships with her peers. She leads by example and inspires those around her. Her natural problem solving skills combined with always seeking to understand makes her a joy to work with. In addition, she serves on the School Improvement Team and provides valuable insights and suggestions to help make our school better. The School District of Arcadia is grateful for Danielle and appreciates her dedication to the Arcadia community.

Each month all staff members have the opportunity to nominate their peers for the School District of Arcadia Stronger Together Award. The purpose of the Stronger Together Award is to recognize employees who serve our district in an exceptional manner by collaborating with staff, inspiring students and engaging families.
