Mr. Dan MacFarland - Fourth Grade
THIS WEEK'S HOMEWORK:
Greetings, my name is Dan MacFarland. I will be the 4th grade teacher at St. Martin of Tours. I am looking forward to beginning a relationship with all of my students and their parents. This is a return to teaching for me. I graduated from Temple University with a degree in education and taught special education for several years. I then pursued a successful career in business. It was through my volunteer work with an Independence Mission School that my passion to teach was
I recently completed a Master of Science in Education at Gwynedd Mercy University to increase and refresh my knowledge and divert my teaching focus to early education. I found that as a father of three I was especially good at fostering a love of learning in children at a young age when skills are established for lifelong success.
I am happily married with three grown children. As an active member of my parish, I enjoy working with the community to help it grow. I love hiking, spending time in the outdoors. I also love art and reading.
I look forward to a year of sharing our educational experiences and providing fresh opportunities to guide our St. Martin of Tours children’s growth.
