Education is a second career for Danny, who originally joined the army. On leaving, he decided to take a degree in early childhood education – which has culminated in winning a prestigious Pearson Teaching Award! He is described as an “inspirational” member of The Millbrook Primary School Team in Bettws, Newport where he has been a teaching assistant for the last 3 years. During that time, he has made an outstanding difference to pupil and family lives; helping children of all abilities to reach for the stars and to do their very best. Danny lives and works in his local community and is the proud father of 5, all currently in education. He is totally committed to encouraging a love of learning, promoting the school motto; “learning about caring; caring about learning”. His own motto with the children is “if f I can do it, so can you!”
