Dani Huffman

Academic Coaching Associate
Maine East High School

Dani majored in Environmental Studies and Spanish Literature at Kenyon College. She lived and worked on the Kenyon Farm, a student-run operation that sells produce, eggs, and farm-raised meat to the local community. Dani also worked in the Office of Green Initiatives at Kenyon, where she helped compile the college's first carbon emissions inventory, and promoted sustainability on campus. Dani joined Schuler in July 2019 and she hopes to share her interests inside and outside the classroom with the scholars at Maine East.

Dani likes cooking, growing her own food, paddle-boarding, going to concerts, and spending time with people and animals.

"I come into the peace of wild things, who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water." - Wendell Berry, The Peace of Wild Things
