About Krisitn McDaniel

Greetings! My name is Kristin McDaniel and I absolutely love being a part of the La Canada Unified School District family! I grew up in La Crescenta, and have been an active member of La Cañada and the surrounding communities for many years. Shortly after high school, I began at working at Tom Sawyer Camp. I spent eleven summers working and playing at camp, and spent six years as a Director of the Pre Camp program. While I’ve spent the last few summers with my daughter, I will always be a firm believer in the power of camp! In addition, my husband still works there year-round and we get to send our daughter next summer... we can't wait!

I received my undergraduate degree and multiple subject credential at Cal State University, Northridge and my Master's in Reading at Cal State University, Los Angeles, along with my Reading Specialist Credential and Post-Secondary Reading Certificate.

I LOVE teaching! Being given the opportunity to foster a child's creative and critical thinking process and see them unfold the knowledge before them is absolutely the best job out there. I'm thrilled to start another adventure with your child.
