Q&A with Daniel Halman, Year 3 Teacher — St John’s Campus

1. Where were you before this and what persuaded you to join Concordia College?

Before Concordia (St John’s Campus), I was privileged to do work as a relief teacher at a handful of schools in Adelaide, including St John’s Campus. This allowed me to experience a variety of classrooms and hone my teaching practice. What drew me to Concordia College was the Christian focus, the inquiry mindset and a focus on student wellbeing through everything.

2. Three words to describe you.

Organised, thoughtful, kind.

3. What is your motivation or inspiration in your role?

I am motivated by the positive impact on student wellbeing and development I can have as a teacher, especially as this is such a formative stage in their lives. I am also inspired by the growth, innovation, and kindness that I see in the students, and I know that the future is safe in their hands.

4. If you had a superpower, what would it be?

I would have the power of teleportation, so I could save time on travel and sleep in longer in the mornings. I am unfortunately not much of a morning person.

5. Who would you invite to a dinner party of six guests and why? Alternatively, tell us something you might like to share that we could not possibly know?

I am fortunate to have a tight-knit family and friendship group, and I love to have wide-ranging conversations with them, so they would make up my six guests, as well as my wonderful wife who is my other half and makes every situation better.
