DJ Toews, Student Math Teacher


Daniel Toews II, or DJ as known to many, has joined CVA as our fall semester math student teacher, under Mr. Burton in the high school. In December he will graduate from Union College with a BS in Mathematics Education. DJ is from the Central Valley in California, where his family grows oranges and grapefruit. He calls the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California as the greatest place for backpacking and hiking; and has yet to find a mountain in Nebraska that he would consider more than a foothill.
