Mr. Daniel Gavin
Hello fellow Timberwolves, my name is Mr. Gavin, I am very excited for year 3 as a Health and Physical Education teacher career here at Trailside Middle School!. I could not be more pumped for the 19/20 school year and what is to come. 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 the past 5 years, I was a wrestling coach at Potomac Falls High School, but this year I am excited to have the winter to spend time with friends and family
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 2-year-old niece 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.
