Spotlight on Skinner Staff

Meet our newest staff members! 

Spotlight on…Mr. Daniel    

Mr. Daniel is currently student teaching in Mr. Cox's 4th grade classroom, room 312. After 30 years in the private sector, Mr. Daniel's wife of 40 years supported his decision to come back to education as a second career. It has been a very rewarding journey for Mr. Daniel and he still enjoys the challenge of helping young minds develop. Mr. Daniel says that maybe one day he'll retire again, but not yet. Mr. Daniel would like to give thanks to all at Roosevelt University who have assisted him during his studies.
