Mrs. Danelle Kiziah

Mrs. Kiziah is the school counselor at Davenport A+ School.  She loves working with students and families in many capacities!  She's a graduate of Appalachian State University and lives on a family farm in Lenoir with her husband and 2 sons.  After teaching English at South Caldwell High School for 5 years, she came to work as the school counselor at Davenport A+ School in 2014.  She currently shares an office with the school social worker and the school nurse.


In addition to being the 504 coordinator, Mrs. Kiziah also sees students in the school for brief, school-level individual and group counseling, as needed. In her work with students, she loves to integrate child-centered strategies, such as play therapy and expressive arts therapy. She works closely with the school nurse and school social worker, as well as community church groups, to run assistance programs, such as the Backpack Program and the Christmas Angel Tree Program. Please contact student services at Davenport if you have any questions about these services.
