Dan is thrilled that the opportunity to teach in the community that helped him grow came up so soon after he graduated from MSU with a B.S. in Math. He appreciates teaching in a community where he is able to help students grow in many facets of life not just in mathematics. He’s also extremely excited for the freedom to create unique and intriguing lessons. Dan knew early on that he wanted to teach math and chose to student teach Pre-Algebra under the mentorship of former math teacher, Christina Miceli as his Senior Project. He learned first hand what it is to be an excellent math teacher at Roeper. Coincidentally, he’s teaching in her old room which was also where he was in her homeroom.
