Danielle R. Green is in constant pursuit of learning, growing, developing, and enhancing her skillset to be of service to the community. She considers her role as an educational leader and consultant a form of service - a ministry. Her mission is to change the landscape of education within a society that has historically denied education to people of color who are underserved and under-represented. For more than 25 years she’s helped communities understand the significance of education, how it can create opportunities, and how it can be leveraged to create one’s own destiny. Her knack for working with students during the most challenging times of their educational journeys has yielded lasting impacts in the lives of thousands of youths. She credits this success to her inherent ability to show love and compassion while building genuine relationships - and to her mother - who, early on, called her attention to the fact that all her jobs during her youth were either education-related or involved working with youth. Danielle’s journey spans four major school districts and various types of communities and academic settings. As one of three founding Principals within Baltimore City Public Schools, she developed and implemented a charter transformation program, yielding a 100%graduation rate and quadrupling the number of graduates in just one school year - an outstanding accomplishment at a school where more than 85% of students were already parents, had a history of incarceration or were violent offenders. The school then became the most requested alternative school in the district. In this role, she found personally recruiting students most rewarding. Being hands-on in her work is a natural extension of her adoration for the community, where she regularly facilitates and leverages partnerships. Students, families, teachers, administrators, and community partners would describe Danielle as a trustworthy master teacher who can operate in any space - and for whom training comes naturally when working with teams of various backgrounds.
Her vast experiences have made it explicitly clear that people of color who work in education have the expertise needed to support and serve their communities, rather than having other groups inform how it should be done. As the founder of DRG Consulting, LLC, Danielle gives grassroots education professionals a voice. Schools, academic leaders, service-based organizations, and parents benefit from her robust, 360° insight and tools and resources to ensure student success. Danielle has a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Medgar Evers College, a master’s degree in Administration & Supervision from The City College of New York, a master's degree in Literacy Education from Adelphi University, and a doctorate in Curriculum Instruction & Assessment from Walden University. She’s also a certified conflict manager and has certificates in DEI in the Workplace, and Inclusive & Ethical Leadership from the University of South Florida. Additionally, Danielle is a member of Cohort 8 of New Leaders, an esteemed program that prepares education leaders to deliver results in America's highest-needs schools and was recognized by President Barack Obama & Arnie Dunkin as one of the premier educational leadership training programs in the country. A native of Brooklyn, NY, Danielle currently resides in Maryland and is a loving caregiver to her mother. In her free time, she supports the Night of Peace Family Shelter, Inc., an organization dedicated to assisting homeless families with children, and enjoys good music, dancing, spa days, and binging on episodes of Law & Order. Staying true to her calling of service as a priority, Danielle supports the community as a member of the NAACP, National Urban League, National Alliance of Black School Educators, National Council of Negro Women, Top Ladies of Distinction, National Association of Parliamentarians, The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Incorporated and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Danielle serves as the inaugural international director for the Office of Training and Development of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. Danielle wants to be remembered for living out her most treasured phrase: ETJ (enjoy the journey), for establishing and leveraging meaningful relationships to produce radical results, and for being a girl from the hood who’s making good, trying to uphold promises made to her family. An experienced speaker, emcee, and facilitator, Danielle gives insights on Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Organizational Dynamics, Community Relations, Leadership Development & Enhancement, Team Development, and DEI - all while keeping audience actively engaged.
