I am Dana Milton and I am a kindergarten teacher here at Scenic Heights Elementary. I graduated from the University of West Florida. I began teaching fourth and fifth grade. I then became part of the Scenic Heights Family and began teaching kindergarten. This will be my fifteenth year teaching kindergarten here at Scenic Heights Elementary. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child this year! I love the enthusiasm and excitement the children bring to every activity and getting the opportunity to see the world through their eyes. It is my mission to build on your child's strengths while instilling a love for learning. My classroom is a nurturing environment in which your child will feel successful and proud!. My goal is to help your child grow physically, socially, and academically every day. I am looking forward to a year of fun, exploration, and lots of learning!
