Shanna Danielson

Shanna Danielson taught elementary band and general music for seven years in the Cameron County School District. In January 2017 she re-joined the workforce and started working for the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association as Director of Education and Events. Her interest in politics has increased since Governor Corbett’s administration cut education funding. As a teacher and active member of her LEA, she saw first-hand who suffered from the cuts: the students. After the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, she became an active member of the local chapter of MOMS Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, taking the role of Legislative Lead. Danielson’s platform stresses increasing support for public schools and teachers to better the quality of services. Moreover, she believes politicians should be accountable for their actions and words, responsive to their constituents, and should compromise to pass beneficial legislation.
