Danielle Kowalkowski

I started my career as a Physical Education teacher at Leyden High School in 2006. In those years, I have taught a variety of classes such as Fr/So Girls PE, Team Sports, Indiviudal Sports, and Physical Managament. I have been the Head Coach of the Girls Volleyball program since 2010, coached Boys Volleyball for my first 12 years at Leyden, and I am the sponsor for the Physical Education Leaders Club at West Leyden. My passion lies in nutrition and fitness.  I truly enjoy getting students active and excited about living a healthy lifestyle.  I have been married for ten years and have a daughter, Madelyn who was born in 2017.
