Orange County has many incredible principals leading its schools, and Thornebrooke Elementary Principal Christopher Daniels is one of them. Daniels began working at TES in 2006 as an assistant principal and became principal in 2008. A graduate of both Florida State University and Stetson University, Daniels also is TES’ longest-serving principal and has more than 30 years of experience in elementary education.
I love helping the children learn and develop in positive ways.
My favorite part is giving the many awards and recognitions to students and teachers.
I love a challenge, and I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children at Thornebrooke Elementary School.
I have a drive to help all children and staff achieve to their highest levels in a positive atmosphere.
Getting a handmade picture or card thanking me for helping a student is really nice. I recently received a letter from a student I taught almost 20 years ago. It really made my day!
The coolest place I’ve visited is Yellowstone National Park. I was camping with my son and we loved seeing the wildlife and beautiful scenery.
I would have super speed, like the Flash. I could be everywhere I need to be in seconds. I could get so much more accomplished!
I would want to see Bruce Springsteen. I have always heard his shows are great!
I specifically remember loving "Johnny Tremain." But I also loved biographies when I was a student, which wasn't the norm for my age group.
I would have to say that John F. Kennedy has always been an inspiration. I have always had a quote of his hanging in my office.
My favorite sport has to be running. I ran cross country and track in high school and in college. I still love running today and remain active. My favorite team sport would be college football. FSU is my team as I am an (alumnus).
