    His last four years in teaching were spent creating, coordinating, and teaching in APEX, an extensive gifted/talented program serving 19 elementary schools and some 15,000 potential students.

He also worked as a national language-arts consultant, sharing his own Writing Well curriculum which he had created for his own classroom.

Whenever someone says writing cant be taught, Dan begs to differ and has the track record to prove it. Since becoming a full-time writer, Dan likes to visit college writing classes, has taught in New Hampshires Odyssey writing program for adults, and is considering hosting his own Windwalker Writers Workshop.
