Daneels, Mary Ellen

​Mary Ellen Daneels has taught social studies and history courses at Chicago West high School since 1990, using an innovative approach to civics education that the state modeled when mandating that civics education be taught for all public high schools in legislation that took effect with the class of 2016-2017. Because of her expertise, Daneels also became a lead teacher trainer. She highlights the training provided over a three year period to civics teachers throughout the state.
