Ms. Whitney Danner

I am the art teacher at Smithville Upper Elementary.  I began teaching in Smithville in 2013.  Before that time, I taught art in Phoenix, Arizona for three years.  I loved teaching in the Southwest, but I am very happy to be back in Missouri, as I grew up in Kansas City, and it has always felt like home.  I earned both of my degrees from schools in Iowa.
Aside from teaching, I spend a lot of time around soccer.  I have played soccer since the age of four and was fortunate enough to play throughout college.  I still play in adult leagues today.  Also, I have enjoyed coaching at various levels, including college soccer.  I am also a huge fan of Sporting Kansas City!
