My name is Dan Stevens, I am one of the Special Education Teachers. This is my 1st year at Rosa Parks and my 5th year as a special education teacher. I decided to join Rosa Parks because I was impressed by the school’s dedication to helping students learn in way that suits them best. I firmly believe that students do well when they are supported and I am a person that always roots for the underdog. This applies to all aspects of my life as I am a fan of many minnesota sports teams (Vikings, Timberwolves, Twins). In my spare time, I enjoy following sports, outdoor activities, playing video games, and hanging out with friends and family. I am familiar with a variety of “geeky” activities such as anime, sci-fi shows, fantasy and so on. My personal mission at Rosa Parks is to guide my students to find a life that is meaningful to them and to help provide them access to the tools they need to succeed in achieving their dreams.
