Chino, Daniel
Special Education Assistant
Helping and assisting people with special needs is my passion. I began with volunteering with my church in Arizona and my first job was assisting adults with developmental disabilities. There I learned many valuable skills and helped clients set their goals and work to achieve them while fostering their independence. I have also volunteered with the Special Olympics as well. Having children of my own with special needs has taught even more than I can explain. I believe with the right assistance and positive encouragement there is nothing children with specials needs can't achieve. And I'm here to help in any way I can!

I received a BS in K-12 Special Education from Tennessee Technological University in 2000. I went on to further my education by completing M.Ed in P4 Special Education at Arkansas State University. I have worked with children of all ability levels in the all the years I have been teaching. I firmly believe that all children are capable of reaching their full learning potential, and as teachers we are their guides.

I started working at Dickson Middle School in 2015. I love working with students in the WIN building getting the extra support they need in reading and math. My goal is to give the students every opportunity to excel in the classroom and in life.
