A Red Bank Elementary teacher passed Saturday. 

Danielle McBath was a first-grade teacher and was in her first year at Red Bank Elementary.   She previously taught at Lakeside Academy. 

A post on the Red Bank Elementary Facebook page says, "She bonded quickly with our staff and connected easily with her first-grade students as she was known for having an individualized handshake, high five or greeting for each of her students. Danielle laughed readily and took on adventures ranging from STEM education to skydiving. Her classroom has been decorated with clouds as she encouraged her students to ponder 'oh, the places you’ll go!' "

Tim Hensley with the Hamilton County Department of  Education, says Ms. McBath died from a sudden illness.  He says counselors will be on hand Monday at both Red Bank Elementary and Lakeside Academy.
