Reopening and Reuniting at Stratford in the Age of COVID-19

“I strive to encourage safe, healthy, inclusive, and meaningful education.” 

Daniel Medley, or “Coach Danny,” teaches physical education to kindergarten through second grade students at Stratford School’s Santa Clara Pomeroy campus.

At Stratford, Daniel has been afforded the opportunity to expose students to both new and traditional physical education activities, and encourages his students through individual motivation, group participation, and the facilitation of positive social interactions

For his young students, Daniel focuses first on developing gross motor skills which, in turn, leads to the fine motor skills required to excel in athletics.
