Daley Whitaker

ELA-E Teacher


First Grade

My name is Daley Whitaker and this is my fifth year teaching first grade. I come from Washington, D.C. where I taught first grade for three years in D.C. Public Schools. Prior to that, I went to school at American University where I studied elementary education. Reading education is my passion and as a member of the DC Reading Clinic, I was able to spread the Science of Reading to my colleagues. I moved to Denver in 2021 and have been teaching in Denver Public Schools ever since. I love to play with my dog, spend time outside hiking, and get dinner with friends.

A quote that I try to live by:

“Education is one thing no one can take away from you.” —Elin Nordegren
