“Winners get to the top and turn around to see those they have defeated. Leaders get to the top and turn around and help others achieve the same.” -Dan Church.
Every day this sentiment guides Dan whether he is in the classroom or orchestrating athletics. He and his wife, Keeley (Winchendon’s College Counseling Office), have four children: Nathan ’12 & PG ’13, Natalie, Sophie ’19, and William. As if the house isn’t full enough, they also have a dog, two cats, and bees. With his integration of the stock market and economics in his classrooms, Dan’s students see and grasp the concepts and practicalities of math.
