This year, we will be highlighting staff members from Brookview so you can get to know us a little more OUTSIDE of the classroom. This week’s Staff Spotlight: Daniel Chapman- ESL How long have you been teaching? This is my 3rd year teaching at Brookview. Where did you grow up? I grew up in Johnston and attended Johnston schools for my entire K-12 career. What is a little known fact about yourself? After graduating from college I spent a summer working on a cattle ranch near Miles City, Montana. I was basically a cowboy for a summer. Why did you get into teaching? After graduating from college I spent 2 years teaching English in Spain. The experience of working with students who were learning English inspired me to get into teaching ESL back in the United States Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without? It's hard for me to go a day without some kind of physical activity or exercise- even if it's just a walk around the block! What's the most daring thing you've ever done? Skydiving What is the best part of teaching? The best part of teaching is the connections and relationships that you can build with students. I love hearing their stories!

4th graders made a community service goal this year of spreading kindness and serving others in our school, community, and the world. Students braved the cold this morning by holding up signs for the parent pick-up line and classes have been working to spread kind notes on student’s lockers. They also chose to do some extra cleaning in our ESL and ELP rooms to spread a little joy! Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!! #givelove
