Daniel joined Edison High School in 2011, where he teaches Senior Seminar, Algebra, Toastmasters, and occasionally biking. In 2007 Daniel earned a B.A. from the University of Oregon's School of Planning, Public Policy, and Management in concert with graduating from the university’s Clark Honors College. After graduation, Daniel worked for a school year as an Academic Success Coach with InsideTrack in Portland. His work with students focused on developing good study habits; developing balance among work, family, and school priorities; and professional goal setting. He then departed for Honduras with the Peace Corps, where he served two years as a teacher, baseball coach, and planning consultant alongside his wonderful wife, Emily (a JHS faculty member). Shortly after beginning work at Edison, he began pursuing a masters in special education at Portland State University, and he holds an M.S. in Special Education. His passions beyond teaching include hiking, mountaineering, cycling, tinkering, reading, and spending time with family. Daniel has happily found a home at Edison, where he is able to realize his passion for educating each student as a unique learner.
