Ms. Danielle Cooney, M.Ed.

Hello Hazelwood East community!! 

My name is Danielle Cooney and I'm a new educator here at Hazelwood East! I'm teaching one of the Essential Skills classes and I'm excited to get to know new students, staff and embrace what Hazelwood East is all about!

A little about me:

I've taught a Transitional classroom (Life skills, Independent Living, Vocational/Employment skills, and Community Based Instrction) at a Behavioral Therapetic school for 4 years. I'm also a parent of a young adult who has Autism and Nonverbal. His journey inspires me to be the best educator I can be. 

I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue to grow as an educator, to bring my knowledge and experience to Hazelwood East. 

Thrilled to meet you all, 

Danielle Cooney, M.Ed.
