Denise Darr

Denise Darr moved to Texas from Tampa, Florida in 2009. As a new resident of Houston she found Northland through the Lord’s guiding hand. Denise met Northland teacher Dena Kraner at her neighborhood park. Mrs. Kraner’s kind spirit and encouraging words about her Northland Christian school family stuck with Denise when she started looking for the right Christian school for her son. Inevitably God knew where they belonged and the Darr family has been proud Northland Cougars since 2014.

“We are blessed beyond words to attend this school. Northland Christian is more than a school, it’s a Christian family. I look forward to each school year as I witness my child grow in God’s love. The teachers and administrators pour God’s word into these children daily. The friends and families we have met through Northland are a testament to the school’s motto, “One family, One mission, Truth Forever, Victory Forever, and Glorifying God forever. “

Denise and her husband Dale have been married for 17 years. They have a 9 year old son, Daulton, who started at Northland in kindergarten and is currently in 3rd grade. She enjoys working with children and previously owned and operated seven Gymboree Play & Music centers in Florida. Denise serves on the Northland Christian Executive Board for PTO. She also works as a substitute teacher, the Clinician, and Administrative Assistant at the Elementary Campus. 

She has served as a volunteer Cub Scout Leader with Boy Scouts of America and the Director for John Wesley UMC Vacation Bible School. The Darrs sponsor children and families through Child Fund and Star of Hope Missions. They attend St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church where Daulton recently received his first communion.

Like her mother and father, Denise attended Florida State University. As a native Floridian she enjoys spending time at the beach with her family and friends. She is an avid tennis player and snow skier. Her true passion is being her son’s biggest cheerleader in the classroom and on the sports fields.

Denise says, “Serving on the foundation board brings a level of compassion and hard work to make the right decisions with a servant’s heart.” For her, Acts 20:35 comes to mind. “In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’.’’
