Mr. Perry spent his growing up years in Sunnyvale, California. This begins Mr. Perry’s thirty-fifth year of teaching, thirteen of those years at MAA. He has taught grades five through ten and has been a principal.

Dan feels that teaching is where his strengths are. He says, “I enjoy seeing students grasp new ideas and then leading them to Christ.”

You'd be surprised to know that...

Mr. Perry swims for exercise three to four times a week. His wife Carolyn frequently joins him.
