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 last year I embarqued on a new journey in 3rd grade teaching math and science. I am excited to share though that this year I will call the gymnasium my home!
This past January my husband and I welcomed our first born into the world and boy has he changed our lives! We also host a 9 year old little girl from Belarus every summer for 6 weeks and we have been doing this for the past 3 summers. Last, but certainly not least, I have a fur baby who thinks he's just as much human as my other 2 children. He is an almost 5 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!
