Danielle Marolf has called Pinellas County home for 24 years. She and her husband Brad have been married for 28 years, and have raised their children here, where they attended public, fundamental, and private schools. In all three school environments, Danielle volunteered heavily.
Danielle holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, is a former real estate agent and now is a successful businesswoman, community leader, and private school administrator.
In 2011, she saw a need for an additional educational option for her own children and founded a successful private hybrid school, focusing on gifted students and those with dyslexia.
Danielle has zeroed in on school safety both for her teachers and her students, as well as continuing to draw parents and teachers together to work cooperatively.
Graduates of her school have continued on to prestigious schools such as Oxford University in England as well as state schools and trade schools. She is an adamant proponent of trade options and accelerated dual enrollment.
In 2021, Danielle saw the need for students of smaller schools to be able to participate in FHSAA sports without losing School Choice scholarships, so she lobbied for the inclusion of FHSAA sports participation for students in small schools with the State Legislature. In May 2022, HB223 was passed into law.
This is just one example of how Danielle represents the grassroots parents and students of Pinellas County.
Danielle’s longevity and pioneering efforts in education as well as her early involvement in public education as a parent and volunteer give her a unique perspective on Pinellas County Schools.
Her passion is to see a safe, productive, and positive environment for all students and families in Pinellas County.
