My name is Adam McDaniel and this is my first year teaching English Language Art at Pattonville Senior High School. I earned my BA in English Literature and Creative Writing from Webster University and have remained passionate about literature, writing, art, film and music. I'm currently completing my Master's in Education at UMSL.

As an educator at PHS, my primary objective is to provide students with the scaffolding, supports and responsively tailored instruction that best meets their individual academic needs. Employing the latest in research-based instructional strategies students will engage with coursework in personalized, responsive, dynamic and constructive ways designed to maximize their learning potential.

Students are at the center of my instructional philosophy and to be my curriculum should be reflective of and responsive to the individual readiness, interests and learning needs of my students. Diverse learners make for a diverse curriculum and my classroom should be a space that celebrates a variety of voices and perspectives from the literary canon. As an eduacator, I am committed to helping students in the hard work of making sense of the world which they occupy and providing opportunities to develop the skills necessary for shaping a more equtable future, where their voice is given meaning and agency through literacy.

My door is always open to any student, parent or guardian who would like to discuss how we can collectively work toward our common educational goals. If you would like to schedule a meeting please feel free to contact me at the provided link below and I will get back to you ASAP.

Additionally, I can be reached at Pattonville during office hours during 1st and 2nd period at 314xxxxxxx at Ext. xxxx.
