KG Literacy Coach:
Natasha McDaniel

My name is Natasha McDaniel, District Literacy Coach at Magrill. I discovered my passion for working with children through volunteering at my church’s summer camp in Ohio. This led me to study Early Childhood Education at Bowling Green State University, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Education and Reading Specialization. While in college I learned about our university partnership with Aldine ISD for an opportunity to student teach in Texas. My first visit, I fell in love with the culture and diversity of Houston and moved to work in Aldine soon after graduation.

I began at Spence Elementary where I taught grades K-3, then supported teachers as K-2 Language Arts Skills Specialist. This is now my third year as District Literacy Coach and my passion, especially for literacy education, only continues to grow. I am currently pursuing my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction with a Minor in Reading from Sam Houston State University. I look forward to supporting and advocating for students, families, teachers, and all of our Mustang community.
