Mr. Daniel Gavin

     What is going on to the fellow members of the Pack!!!, my name is Mr. Gavin, I am very excited for year 5 as a Health and Physical Education teacher here at Trailside Middle School!. I could not be more pumped for the 21/22  school year and what is to come. I know it will be a bit different to start but I know that the facutly and students at Trailside will make the best out of it, because in my time at Trailside I have seen that is what we do! I am born and raised here in Loudoun County, growing up in Sterling and graduating from Potomac Falls in 2005. I then attended West Virginia University and earned a Bachelor’s in Sport Management. I then attended Shenandoah University to obtain a Teaching License in the state of Virginia. For 5 years, I was a wrestling coach at Potomac Falls High School and I am very passitonate about sports, teaching middle school students about the positives of sports and physical activty is a true passion for me. 

     In my free time, I love to play golf, tennis, or anything to be outside with my friends. I am a big fan of dramatic TV shows and movies. I have two dogs and a cat that take up a lot of my time otherwise. Spending time with my 4-year-old niece and 2 month old nephew is also a ton of fun. I am very passionate about what I do, students learning and developing in health and fitness, and I know this will be a fantastic year. I can’t wait to continue on this journey with everyone. Go Timberwolves, Go Red Sox, and Go Patriots.
