Mrs. Amber Danchak

Hello! My name is Amber Danchak and I am the P.E. teacher here at Corinth-Holders Elementary School. CHES is home to me. This is where I went to elementary and middle school when it was Corinth-Holders School (K-8). I graduated from Smithfield-Selma High School in 2010 and East Carolina University in 2013 with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught 2nd grade here at Corinth-Holders Elementary School for 4 years and completed 1 year in 3rd grade teaching math and science. Since 2019, I have been able to call the gymnasium my home and have loved every minute of it! I love that I have been given the opportunity to teach the students of CHES how important it is to be active and take care of their bodies.

In January of 2019 my husband and I welcomed our first born into the world and boy has he changed our lives! We will also be welcoming our 2nd baby boy into the world in September and we cannot wait to make out family complete. Every summer we host a girl from Belarus for 6 weeks and we have been doing this since 2017. Last, but certainly not least, I have a fur baby who thinks he's just as much human as my other children. He is an almost 7 year old chocolate lab named Rivers.

I am so excited to see what this year holds and I cannot wait to see everyone again! My hope is that every student that walks through my door this year, realizes that they can be successful and that they can do hard things!
