Greetings and Welcome! My name is Danielle Barnard and I am the Principal of the 3rd through 5th grades at RPA. Growing up I frequently moved around and attended 14 different elementary schools; I knew by the time I was in 2nd grade I wanted to be an educator. I wanted to do things to make a difference, especially for those students who fell through the cracks like me. This is my 5th year at RPA and my 3rd year as an administrator. I consider myself a lifelong learner and am so grateful to have the opportunity to apply the things I learn at our school. RPA is unlike any other school I’ve worked in, and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else!
