Mrs. Genesis Gabriella Ortiz Danh
Hello! My name is Mrs. Genesis Danh and I am the ESL (English as a second language) teacher at Pinedale Elementary.
First, I am a first generation Dominican-American. My family is from the Dominican Republic and I grew up speaking both English and Spanish. I speak both languages, but English is my first language. Also, I am married and have no children!
When it comes to my education, I graduated from Kennesaw State University in 2019 with my bachelors in Elementary Education with endorsements in ESL and reading at the honors level of Summa Cum Laude. From there, I went on to study for my masters degree in elementary education with a gifted endorsement and graduated with honors (Summa Cum Laude) in 2021 from Kennesaw State University. Currently, I am studying at the University of Southern Mississippi for my doctorate in Educational Leadership and hope to graduate in 2025.
When it comes to my teaching experience, I am currently in my 4th year of teaching. From 2019-2021, I taught for Marietta City Schools (Georgia) as a 2nd grade teacher in a classroom of predominately EL and gifted students. From 2021-present, I have taught at Pinedale Elementary as the ESL teacher. Previously, I have tutored Spanish for elementary students and all other subjects for high school students through the Kennesaw State Upward Bound Program.
