Danielle VanAuken



This is my 4th year teaching at Swigert and my 8th year as an educator. I am originally from Rochester, New York and received by BS from the State University of New York at Geneseo. My passion for IB began in high school, where I graduated from an IB Diploma program. Since then, I've strived to continue my journey as a lifelong learning and have had the opportunity to teach abroad in Nicaragua and Ghana, which have helped shape my teaching style.

When I am not teaching, I love working in my garden, exploring the mountains, and eating great food with my husband, Murtala and our son, Malik. We enjoy going hiking, camping, relaxing in the park, and seeing live music. I am thrilled to be a part the Swigert community and look forward to meeting all of you!
