Episode 2 | Dan Cummings
Welcome to Our Classroom! In this space, we talk about education, which is inclusive of but not limited to what happens in schools. Education is taking place whenever and wherever we are willing to learn.
Today’s episode features Dan Cummings. In this conversation, Roberto and Dan chop it up about the experience of leading a rural school, the common thread of poverty experienced in many rural and urban schools, and what justice work looks like in this setting.

He is in his 23rd year as an educator and 8th year as a principal. Degrees from Colorado State University and Middlebury College, he is an avid practitioner of the martial arts and an amateur photographer. He and his wife just celebrated twenty years of marriage and spent the last 6 months building a small, off-grid cabin in the middle of nowhere Colorado.
