Staci Danford’s infectious smile and west Texas roots give her a special brand of rare charm. Her down-to-earth teaching style creates an unforgettable connection in the hearts and minds of her audiences.
From childhood, Staci was a leader. As the oldest sibling, she became a teacher at the age of four, so it felt perfectly natural to continue that role throughout her life. Staci has a unique ability to teach and encourage people of any age or skill level and always finds a way to inspire people to be their best.
Staci spent more than two decades in the classroom, teaching over a thousand students in many different subjects at almost every grade level. She quickly developed a reputation for being able to uncover hidden potential in people like no one else. Little did she realize however, that her students would be the ones to teach her the very thing that moved her path in a new direction.
After winning The Fort Worth Top Ten Teacher Award, Staci decided it was the perfect time to go back to school and pursue her longtime passion of Neuroscience. Her Master’s degree, which originated at Harvard University, is called ‘Mind, Brain and Education’. Combining scientific research and a cognitive awareness of how the brain processes emotional information, Staci merged this new material with the lessons she’d learned in the classroom. Using one life altering sentence from a “lost 16-year-old boy,” she developed her entire Graduate Research study and created a message about GRATITUDE that would later change the lives of people all over the world.
Staci is a one-of-a-kind mix of Neuroscience and JOY who teaches that the practice of scientific gratitude is like a magical “thank you” for your brain. It can change your business productivity, health, relationships, and most of all: GRATITUDE teaches you to see the good in others while uncovering the best within yourself!
