Hi, my name is Dan Stevens, and I teach grade 5 at the American School in Japan. I am originally from a small town in Ontario, Canada, famously known as Gananoque, in the heart of the 1000 Islands.
I have lived in Japan for 8 years with my wife, Michelle (PE/Science in the MS) and my son Zack (grade 3), and daughter Isabel (kindergarten). This is our third overseas school, having also taught at the Frankfurt International School in Oberursel, Germany and at Colegio Maya, and Colgio Interamericano in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Hobbies include playing ice hockey for the Tokyo Canadians Hockey Club, playing drums in my band, running, swimming, and skiing in Hakuba, Nagano whenever we get the chance. During our summer holidays I enjoy golfing, mountain biking and spending warm summer days at our cottage.
