Daniel was a member of Teach for America and taught math in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi River. Although he faced great challenges teaching in this rural community, Daniel ultimately encountered immense success as close to 80% of his students showed significant gains - the second highest rate among math students at the school. This experience in combination with encouraging words from mentors at his school led to his passion for education.
He chose to attend GSPP due to its ability to blend quantitative rigor with a flexibility to choose classes in a way that allows him to focus on his current interests and shape his future career path. At Goldman, Daniel hopes to strengthen his quantitative and analytical skills so he can examine and work to solve problems in both the public and private sectors.
Daniel graduated from New York University in 2008, with a B.A. in Journalism and Politics.
