Faces of Milan

Don Adams

Dan Adams
4th Grade Teacher

Dan Adams grew up in a family of six kids in Stockbridge, Michigan.  He did his student teaching for Milan Schools and was hired to teach 4th grade in Milan four days before he graduated. He has lived here ever since.  

Dan lives in Milan with his wife Teresa and his sons, Tyler and Blake, and their Shih Tzu, Jasmine.  They are a house divided.  Tyler attends the University of Michigan and Blake attends MSU.  

In his free time, Dan enjoys spending time with family, photography, video editing, and anything game show related. Dan appeared on $100,000 Pyramid and won $1,250. He also hosts Symons Elementary's annual game show night.  

Dan's two favorite parts of teaching are reading aloud to kids and connecting with former students to celebrate their successes.  He was inspired to become a teacher by his 5th grade teacher, Marilyn Potter.
