Ms. Danielle McCloskey


Welcome to fifth grade with Ms. McCloskey! I hope your summer has been filled with adventures and memories that you will share with our class this fall! Get ready for a great year! This will be your final year in Elementary school, and I hope it will be filled with meaningful learning, fun times, and moments to remember.

I love being part of the Shakopee school district. I have taught High Potential for several years, and then moved into fifth grade both in person and online.  I have taught fifth and sixth grade in another school district, as well as taught in Australia for two years.  I love to use technology with students and build student confidence in the world of math.

In my free time I love to travel,  go walking with my dogs,  watch movies, and be with my family. I love to workout and go running.  I do therapy training and volunteer with my dog Oakly in my free time too and am very passionate about animals.
