It's Wildcat Wednesday! Every Wednesday, we will spotlight a member of the LR Wildcat family.
This week we are introducing you to Dylan Barnum!
7th grade Social Studies Teacher
Tell us about your family:
I have been married to my wife for four years now and we have one son, Bohdy, who is 18 months.
How long have you been a teacher/worked in education?
This is my 5th year as a teacher. All 5 of those years have been 7th grade Social Studies.
What makes you passionate about education?
I was impacted by a teacher in middle school, she really changed my life trajectory in all honesty, and I have wanted to help young people ever since.
What is your must-have classroom item?
Let's just say I can work with any classroom item if coffee is in the picture.
If you had to choose a different grade/subject to teach, what would it be?
Anything history related, I honestly love the content that I teach now. So I consider myself to be pretty fortunate in that regard.
What is something about you that might surprise people?
I have really enjoyed reading different types of poetry lately.
What is one item on your bucket list?
Traveling to New Zealand, visiting Hobbiton of course.
Thanks for being part of the Wildcat family, Dylan!
