Meet The Teacher: Dan Stone
What is your name? Dan Stone
What do you teach? AP US History (Dan is also Dayspring’s Upper School Principal)
How many years have you taught at Dayspring? The 2018-2019 school year is my 15th year
What do you appreciate the most about the Principle Approach? It is rooted in God’s word; there are always new layers to uncover, even in this ever-changing world.
What do you see in your students that is most encouraging? I’m most encouraged by the “lightbulb” moments that I see, especially among older students, as they engage in truth and make the connection to how it applies to their lives.
Why do you love teaching at Dayspring? I have freedom to teach biblical truth; and to engage my students on how to identify biblical truth and make application.
How do you teach a biblical worldview in your classroom? I attempt to always point my students back to what God’s word has to say about the issue. Whether it’s the biblical view of man, government, charity, philanthropy, justice, work, wealth, etc., I hope to always be reiterating what God’s word has to say on the issue.
What do you think most students appreciate about your class? I hope they appreciate getting a breadth of knowledge that is useful to them.
What is unique about you, your talents, or interests that you bring to the classroom? I’m a political nerd and love to discuss/debate current issues. So, as a history teacher, I find it very fulfilling that I get to teach and engage students in things about which I am passionate.
What have you seen in your students over the years that has touched your heart the most? I am always touched at graduation. Each year, it is so encouraging to see our outgoing seniors recognize and appreciate what they have received here.
