Dana Blackhurst loves to teach all subjects but feels he is most valuable teaching social studies and geography, subjects that 'anchor' kids in the world and lend themselves to multi-sensory learning. With extensive knowledge of historical events, Chandler kids show how bright they are even if they have a more difficult time reading and writing.
When Hunter Patterson isn’t wrestling playfully with his little boy, he’s working alongside Dana, his former headmaster, inspiring kids to learn. As a dyslexic learner himself, he understands kids' frustrations with learning differences and how critical each year is to their progress.
Hartlee Blackhurst makes a mean taco and has personal experience with learning differences having grown up dyslexic. She teaches Social Studies in creative ways including hands-on projects that illustrate the point while keeping students engaged, learning, and happy about it.
