Ms. Gainey


My name is Dani Gainey and this is my third year teaching at Mabel Elementary. I could not be more excited to be a part of this community!

I was raised in an Air Force household, so we traveled often. I've lived in Alabama, Germany, New Mexico, Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina. I went to high school in Sanford, NC and graduated from Appalachian State University in December 2017 with my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and concentration in Social Studies. My favorite subjects to teach are Math and Science and I love to read! I am a huge Harry Potter fan. 

I have two beautiful girls, Penny and Juniper, and a sweet dog named Bluey.

 I cannot wait to meet my students and their families!
