Welcome to 4R!
Hello 4th grade families! My name is Dan Renwick, and this will be my 5th year here at Belmond-Klemme. My first 3 years were in 4th grade, then I had a wonderful year in 2nd grade last year, but ultimately I am SO excited to be returning to 4th grade AGAIN THIS school year. I love this age group and I am excited to get started!
A little background information for you: I was born in San Antonio, TX and lived in the surrounding area until I was 10 years old and entering 4th grade. My dad got a job in my mom's hometown of Osage, and we moved up to Iowa. I am a lifelong fan of the San Antonio Spurs and Texas Longhorns, which made my college experience at Iowa State pretty interesting. I graduated in 2011 from ISU with my Elementary Education Degree with an emphasis in English/Language Arts. While I will always be a Longhorn first, I root for ISU against everyone else.
I know many of the families entering my classroom this year, but I am very excited to get to know those who are new to me. I can't wait to get started! Let's have a great year, everyone!
