About Dan

About the author:

Inspired by the Benedictine Sisters, who provided a stimulating, sometimes scary, sometimes fun elementary school experience at Sacred Heart School in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, Dan Horn knew by the second grade that he wanted to become a teacher. Although his high school experience proved to be challenging at Greensburg Central Catholic, Dan went on to graduate from the University of Pittsburgh with a teaching credential and taught in both public and Catholic schools on the East Coast.

While continuing to work as a teacher and administrator, Dan has been instrumental in transforming two failing Los Angeles-area Catholic schools into national models of success. Under his leadership as principal, St. Thomas the Apostle School was named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and St. Genevieve High School has been designated a National School of Character.

Currently, Dan is President-Principal of St. Genevieve Elementary and High School in Panorama City, CA.
