Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Dana Goodnuff
I'm excited about my 9th year at Plano East as the Associate Choral Director. I love teaching and collaborating with my colleague, Danny Knight, and can't imagine teaching anywhere but here. This is my 11th year in PISD and my 16th year of public school teaching. I hold a Bachelor of Music Education with a concentration in Voice/Choral Music from Indiana University.
Outside of teaching, this would have been my 16th year singing as a chorister with The Dallas Opera, but sadly like so many of the performaing arts, I won't be able to participate due to cancelations. I sang with East Dallas Christian Church as a soprano section leader from 2003-2016 and continue to sing for concerts and special occasions. I'm married to my amazing husband, David, and we have two furry children.
