Dan Tyler is the new 5-8 head-teacher for Riverview Christian Academy (Reno, Nevada).
Dan started his to-date, 30+ year teaching career by graduating from Walla Walla College (now University) with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in History. Dan has spent much of his career as an upper grade head-teacher. His experience has included 9th and 10th grade and public school teaching. Dan holds a current NAD Professional Certificate, as well as Washington State teaching certificate. He has also served on various committees for conferences and the Education Committee for the NPUC.
Dan has a passion to help young people know Jesus as their personal savior. He desires to help students be fully prepared with the skills they need to be life-long workers for the Lord. “Only by being fully committed to a relationship with Jesus, can a person truly find happiness!” Dan’s style of teaching is definitely hands-on and life skill based. Dan has used outreach opportunities to help students to learn to help others and develop life skills for service for Jesus.
Dan and the school board at Riverview Christian Academy have begun to design plans to grow the school to eventually include kindergarten, 9th and 10th grades.
