Champions of Progressive Education in Marin, Marin Magazine


Passionate believers in the lifelong impact of progressive pedagogy, Danny and Rochelle bring educational expertise, broad experience and visionary energy to their jobs.  

Described as a “kid-magnet,” Danny has spent over a decade sharpening the critical thinking skills of elementary and middle school students. Danny’s teaching talents, with Masters degrees in Literature and Educational Leadership, and curriculum design experience at a Stanford think tank, brought him all the way to the White House where he was one of a select few teachers honored by Michelle Obama at an educational summit.

A deep believer in inquiry-based education and the power of learning fueled by curiosity, Rochelle comes from San Francisco University High School and Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York. Rochelle regularly presents at national conferences on educational equity and inclusion, and has extensive experience as a dean, learning specialist, teacher and administrator. She has both an Ed.M and an MSW from Boston University.

Said a parent: “Danny and Rochelle are extraordinary visionaries who have hit the ground running.” Connection, collaboration, big ideas: Marin Horizon is a school that changes lives.
