- Infant Educator
Wisconsin Teaching License
- Birth – Age 11
My name is Danielle Catanzarite. I graduated with a bachelors in science degree from the University of Wisconsin Superior. I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Early Childhood Education. I recently earned my Parent and Family Education license at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Hard work, perseverance, and a positive outlook on early childhood learning have brought me to the UMD Children’s Place.
A little information about me-
I am a mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, and teacher. I have lived in or around Duluth my whole life. (I love the state of Minnesota and never plan on leaving.) I seem to have been born with an excess of patience, which helps in my line of work. I also happen to believe that I have the best job. I am excited to be able to take part in our Infants learning experiences. It is an amazing occurrence to witness new discoveries and skill development through our experiences in the classroom.
I believe that children need to be offered open-ended activities and a positive environment in which to participate. Diversity in activities, media, peers, and classroom items make our infant room an interesting place to be.
