Meet our Kindergarten Teachers


Danielle John­son

Danielle grad­u­at­ed from Mer­ri­mack Col­lege in 2016 with a degree in Human Devel­op­ment with a con­cen­tra­tion in Ele­men­tary Edu­ca­tion. This is Danielle’s first year at Mount Hope. She chose to become a part of the Mount Hope com­mu­ni­ty because of the kind and wel­com­ing atmos­phere that is evi­dent as soon as you step through the door. She loves watch­ing her stu­dents grow aca­d­e­m­i­cal­ly, social­ly, and spir­i­tu­al­ly.  Danielle lives in Chelms­ford and in her spare time enjoys read­ing, spend­ing time with her friends and fam­i­ly, and going to the beach as much as pos­si­ble dur­ing the sum­mer!
