Mr. D grew up in Upstate New York near Oneida Lake. His school experiences there were mostly good. After high school his family moved to Sacramento, CA. He worked at a variety of jobs before deciding that he should go to college. (It’s never too late...) He graduated from CSU Sacramento with honors, and went through the teacher education program there.
Once he started teaching, Mr. D moved to Vallejo, CA, where he taught 5th and 6th grade for four years. He missed living in a less populated place, so he and his wife decided to move to Western Washington.
Mr. D has taught 5th grade for 23 years at Blaine Elementary School. He has a wife and their daughter is in Blaine High School and Whatcom Community College’s Running Start program. They live in Birch Bay and enjoy it here.
