Teacher Mr. Dan Hirn
My name is Dan Hirn and I have been a teacher with the Richmond School District since 2006. I have also been fortunate enough to work during the summers for PRESL, Pacific Rim ESL school. I enjoy meeting new international students each summer. Watching students explore our beautiful city and province while strengthening their English language skills is very rewarding. The fresh air and natural beauty of British Columbia attracted me to the west coast many years ago and I enjoy being able to share that experience with my students.
I received my B.Sc degree at Simon Fraser University and the completed my B. Ed degree at the University of British Columbia. More recently, I completed a Graduate Diploma in Critical Literacy and Technology from Simon Fraser University. Along the way, I spent a couple of years teaching English and living in Japan.
I am excited to be a part of the PRESL team again this summer and look forward to gaining more great memories with my students and colleagues.
