Danele Isenhower » Hello!


My name is Danele Isenhower and I am an Instructional Strategist at Harlan Elementary. I joined the Harlan family in 2019 and feel privileged to be part of a learning environment that truly loves children!

I graduated in 2012 from Ashford University, with BAs in Liberal Arts and Communication Studies. I then went on to do my Master in Elementary Education, graduating in 2014 from Grand Canyon University. Since then, I have furthered my education and added two more endorsements to my license. Currently, I hold endorsements in K-6 Elementary Classroom, K-8 Reading, K-8 Reading/Language Arts, K-12 Instructional Strategist II: BD/LD, and K-12 Instructional Strategist II: ID.

I have worked with individuals from birth to college in various learning environments, for many, many years. The early times were what gave me the drive to obtain my teaching license and officially teach. I love working with ALL students, especially those in elementary. 

I live in the country with my husband, two daughters, grandson, and five fur babies. To round out our family, we also have five sons, one more daughter, four daughter-in-laws, one son-in-law, four more grandsons, and three granddaughters! Our older children and their families live from California to North Carolina, so we have opportunities to travel, which is something I love to do :) I have been fortunate to be able to visit many places inside and outside of the United States, but Europe is still on my bucket list.
