Ms. Dani Tarvin

Welcome to my page! I am so excited to be a part of your FIVE journey!


I'm a California girl, born and bred, but I also spent some of my formative years in Arizona. In 2001, I moved to the East Coast, where I've lived in Florida and the Carolinas. Today, my family is happy to call Irmo our forever home.


I've been in the education field for over 20 years, as both an English teacher and a product designer for an edtech company. I graduated magna cum laude from Arizona State University with my undergraduate degree in English Education and from Converse College with my master's degree in Literacy. Currently, I am earning my master's degree in Library and Information Science at University of South Carolina. In my classroom, I value the importance of creating a safe community in which to learn and grow. I'm a huge bookworm and hope to inspire my students to become lifelong readers and creators. 


In my free time, I enjoy reading, knitting, listening to podcasts, watching Netflix and Disney+, playing with my dog, and hanging out by the pool.
