About Me


Hello!  My name is Danielle (Jacoby) Elder and this is my third year teaching 6th grade at Reynolds Elementary.  I went to school here myself and couldn't be more proud to be a graduate of Reading Community Schools!  I have been married for almost 10 years to Rob Elder (Rob, the Barber smiley) and we have three sons.  Jake is 8 years old and is in the 3rd grade, Drew is 5 and is in Pre-K, and Will turned 1 in May.  We have one dog, Maddie, an English Springer Spaniel who is just like having a fourth child!!  Our family wouldn't be complete without her!
