Dan is a full- time educator and a full-time family man. His daily life isn’t an easy one. He cares for two family members with serious illnesses, while working multiple jobs (as teacher, private tutor, and teacher’s assistant for an on-line university) to provide food, shelter, and pay medical bills. He doesn’t let stress prevent from living out his passion, however. Dan has been teaching for over 20 years. He brings his full spirit and character to the classroom every day, leaving stress at the door. Dan constantly challenges himself and others, working to make sure that every day is better than the last for his students. Dan’s continued work in the classroom is an inspiration – and his selfless love for his family and devotion to his students makes him a hero.
