Meet Mrs. Ardle

Dear Families,

          Hello! My name is Danielle Ardle, and I have the privilege of partnering with you this year in the education of your child. I am excited to spend this very important year with you! Your child and I will be spending a lot of time together in the classroom, and as a mom, I would want to know all I can about my child’s teacher. So I thought I would give you an idea about who I am. J

          I grew up in Owasso, Ok. After graduating from Owasso High School I enrolled at Evangel University in Springfield, MO, and graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. This will be my 18th year teaching kindergarten. I taught for 7 years with Rejoice Christian School in Owasso, and 9 years at Smith Elementary with Owasso Public Schools. This will be my second year at Clift! I am excited to this kindergarten year with you at Clift Elementary and am very blessed to be here. J

          Now that you know my educational background I would like to share some personal information about myself. I feel that family makes up such a large part of who we are and who we will become. Let me tell you about my family. J I am married to my high-school sweetheart, Rick. We met in youth group at our church New Life Assembly of God, which is where we were Associate Pastors for many years. Rick and I have four beautiful children. Andrew is 16. Abbey is 14.  Aaron is 11 and Asher just turned 8 years old. J. As a family some of our favorite things to do are go to the zoo, rent a movie and have a pizza night, play board games, and look through family pictures or DVD’s. Our children are our joy! I love spending time with them, and I truly believe they are our gift from God.J We moved to Texas this because my husband was presented with a new opportunity to work for the North Texas District of the Assemblies of God in the Church Loan Fund department. Our family is very excited to be here in Texas! J

          When I am not teaching or preparing lessons, I enjoy reading a good book, cake or cupcake decorating (that has been a fun hobby for me the last 13 years or so), star gazing, watching Netflix, “pinning” on Pinterest, and catching up on our family photo album. I am always behind on that. J With 4 children we stay very busy! But I wouldn’t have it any other way.          

I hope now you feel that you know me more. I am looking forward to this year of getting to know each of you and your children. Kindergarten is such a fun and exciting year. Your children come into this classroom excited to learn, excited to be here, and ready to be shaped and molded into the young men and women they are meant to become. Let’s work together this year to ensure that they have the best kindergarten year possible! Thank you in advance for all your help!


Always Learning,

                   Mrs. Danielle Ardle
