Ms. Danita Lanier

I’m Danita Lanier, but Ms. Dee is probably suits me better! I began my position as Library Assistant in the 2017-2018 school year here at Ball High School and I love it! Ball High is a fantastic school with great students and staff, too! The library here is a place to learn, read and do projects, but also to hang out with friends. We always want the students to feel comfortable coming into the library and to feel welcome to do so. After completing my BBA with a minor in insurance, I worked in the insurance industry most of my adult life. I took a few breaks in between and while teaching pre-school and raising my children, I discovered my true calling of working with and serving them. As a single parent of two, I continued to work in the business field, until the opportunity was presented to work with children again and I took the leap! I’ve never been happier! Other than work in the library, I like to read and love ballet! I volunteer at a local dance studio, assisting with the youngest students, who are only 3 or 4 years old. So, I get to work with the oldest here at Ball during the day and in my off-time, the youngest at the dance studio! My days are filled with joy!
