My name is Danielle Calamela and this will be my 7th year of teaching. I have taught middle school math for the past 4 years and absolutely love everything about this content and the capability of the students. I graduated from Florida State University and moved back home to Southwest Florida. My family and I relocated to Ocala in 2017 and have loved every minute of it. When it comes to teaching, I am a very "visual" teacher. I prefer teaching using visual aids with real world connections. If the students can place a skill to something they can relate to, they have a higher rate of comprehension. I am very excited to have the opportunity to say that I genuinely love what I do.
