Ludlow-Taylor Elementary School (Interim)
Shaunte Daniel made her way into DCPS in 2011 as an instructional aide. She served in that role for a short time before transitioning to teaching and then serving as an instructional coach. Simultaneously, Ms. Daniel continued to expand her knowledge by enrolling and completing a master’s in teaching from Trinity Washington University and now is a member of the Georgetown University Leadership & Innovation Program.
Before being selected to lead Ludlow-Taylor for School Year 20-21, she spent four years as an Assistant Principal at both Langley ES and Stanton ES. At Langley, she played an integral role in doubling PARCC scores in both ELA and math. In conjunction, Ms. Daniel invested and led the school into graduating from the Flamboyan Family Engagement partnership because of the intentional planning and sustainability of engaging all families into the school. At Stanton, she leaned into increasing strong systems, building community, and developing teacher capacity. Ms. Daniel has a strong passion and purpose in providing meaningful and authentic educational experiences for students. She believes students will transform when given platforms to promote their potential.
