“Once you have learned to ask questions – relevant and appropriate and substantial questions – you have learned how to learn and no one can keep you from learning whatever you want or need to know.”Neil Postman and Charles Weingartner
Hi, I am Dani Hudley. I have been the Science Teacher at Denver Justice High School since it opened in 2009.
One of my passions is working with children. I’ve worked with children for 20 years. I have one child, my 12 year old daughter who is the love of my life. We spend a lot of time hanging out together. When I’m not with my daughter I like to spend my free time reading and learning new things. I’m currently reading a few books on human evolution, a topic I’m really interests me. I like to consider myself a life- long learner. I also really enjoy practicing and teaching yoga.
I am a Denver native and I love living in Colorado. I enjoy being outside and taking advantage of all the wonderful things Colorado has to offer.
The above quote is a good example of what I believe about education. I not only teach the subject of science but I also teach children how to think critically, to ask questions and to seek the answers to their questions. It is important to ask and investigate. Science is a wonderful way to teach these skills to children because question and investigation are the backbone of science.
I love being able to work with young people. They bring such great energy into the classroom. The best moments, in working with young people, are those “ah ha” moments when the light bulb shines and you know they “get it.” It’s at that moment you have just witnessed what learning looks like and I get to be a part of that every day.
