Meet Daniel Heo

Daniel Heo began his career as an intern in the Teacher Opportunity Corps to help address the needs of historically underprivileged communities. As an advocate for equity, he provided his students at Catapult Learning with supplementary educational assistance during the pandemic.

Mr. Heo earned a Bachelor of Arts in adolescent education from Hunter College, City University of New York. He struggled with maintaining the balance between familial responsibilities and his academic work. He overcame these challenges with better time management skills.

He believes that growth is a fundamental part of life, that we want to grow to become better human beings. His experience as a newly arrived immigrant in a foreign land has shaped his perspective on the importance of teachers in the community. Mr. Heo values kindness and compassion as essential traits that every human should strive to uphold in their daily lives. In his free time, he enjoys listening to audiobooks such as the "Star Wars: Thrawn" trilogy and "Darth Plagueis." 

Mr. Heo's favorite quote about growth is: "Good times become good memories, but bad times make good lessons." - Uncle Iroh
