Danielle Legnard, Principal

Mrs. Legnard 2015
It is truly an honor and a privilege to be the principal of Frank A. Berry School and be part of the Bethel Public Schools Family. I come to Bethel with nearly 20 years of experience working in the New Canaan Public Schools where I began my career as an elementary classroom teacher. I was promoted in 2001 to Literacy Specialist and then to Math Specialist. In 2012, I became the K-5 Math Coordinator for the district. I have been an adjunct professor for the Isabelle Farrington College of Education at Sacred Heart University, where I have taught in the 6th year degree graduate program. I earned a Bachelors of Arts Degree from Manhattanville College, a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education from Sacred Heart University, and a Sixth Year Degree in Educational Leadership also from Sacred Heart.

I am dedicated and committed to ensure all children succeed and reach their true potential, become life-long learners and strive to be active members of our community. This commitment is coupled with developing strong and long-lasting family school partnerships to ensure academic excellence for all.

On a personal note, I live in Bethel with my husband and two sons. We have a dog named Buster, six chickens and bees! I love math, building with legos and launching rockets.

I look forward to many years as the principal of Frank A. Berry School!
