Dave Denno

History Teacher

Biography

BA, University of Massachusetts
MA, Brown University

Dave works to balance his role as a teacher at MacDuffie with his most important roles in life: father to Elena, Penelope, and Moxie, and husband to Heather. In addition to his academic interests relating to history and philosophy, Dave is especially fond of working on old cars and listening to heavy metal music. In the classroom, Dave emphasizes relationship building with his students and helping them to develop strong writing and critical thinking skills. These will remain with them even after the content-specific details have evaporated from their memories.
