Golden Apple winner instills communication skills in a math and science world
Daniel Commander is a world-class teacher who does a lot for the already world-class students at the Alabama School of Math and Science in Mobile.
In addition to teaching English and communication, he also teaches public speaking and a media literacy class.
“We’re talking about journalism and the news – we’re doing a fake news unit. Fortunately, this is not false news, ”said Commander with a laugh.
He is also a debating coach at ASMS.
“It’s fascinating to see tomorrow’s leaders learn and grow as thinkers and have difficult conversations about what’s going on in the world,” he said.
He is passionate about teaching, according to former Golden Apple Award nominee Jelixis Edwards. His passion rubs against his students. ASMS President Dr. John Hoyle agreed.
“In a math and science school, we see the importance of teaching our students good communication skills, and he just does a great job.”
We congratulate Daniel Commander and the Alabama School of Math and Science on their good work.
