Mr. David McDaniel

I am in my tenth year in education, having previously worked in West Texas and China prior to arriving in Dallas.  I have worked at Pinkston for the past 7 years as the US History Teacher and Social Studies Department Chair.  Currently serving as a Programs Coordinator for Pinkston, I am looking for opportunities to help our students be successful both in the classroom and outside of the school.  Growing teachers and students to meet their potential is my passion.  I hold students to a high standard because I believe that they can meet and exceed those standards.  I have served the West Dallas community for the better part of the past decade and will continue to always put students first and do what is best by kids.
