Meet the Assistant Principal

Alison Danner, Assistant Principal
Alison Danner

I have had the honor of being a part of West Fannin Elementary for the last 16 years. Fourteen of those years I spent in the classroom and am humbled to have served as the Assistant Principal the last two years. I attended West Fannin Elementary when it was a junior high and graduated from Fannin County High School in 1993. I then attended Cleveland State Community College, where I received my Associate of Science Degree. In 1997, I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Service Management from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and immediately began working as a case manager for the Department of Family and Children Services. I quickly realized this was not my true calling or passion, so I pursued my teacher certification from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. From 1999 - 2002, I taught Kindergarten at Ducktown Elementary in Ducktown, Tennessee. In 2002, I was fortunate enough to acquire a 1st grade position and become a part of the West Fannin family. While at West Fannin, I have taught Kindergarten, 1st , 3rd, and 4th grade students. I also served on the School Governance Team for two years. During these years, I have continued my education by obtaining my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Piedmont College in Demorest, Georgia, my Educational Specialist in Administration and Supervision from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee, and most recently completed my Gifted Endorsement.

My husband, Darren Danner, is also employed by the Fannin County School System. We have one son, Hayden, who currently attends Fannin County Middle School. As a family, we enjoy watching Hayden play football and baseball, participating and training CrossFit classes at CrossFit Fannin, and most of all watching Tennessee Volunteer football.
