My Story

For 32 years Helen Daniel has been the backbone of the English program at Livermore High School, while also leading efforts to establish a cutting-edge computer education program and specialized instruction to non-English-speaking students. She has reached beyond customary classroom duties by leading efforts to keep the campus safe for all students - including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth - and being a valuable resource to her colleagues as a Mentor Teacher. Her impact is illustrated by enduring relationships she has with many former students, including one who could not speak English when he arrived in her classroom but is now a gifted computer scientist with a degree from the University of Chicago and an MBA from Cal State Hayward.
