Mr. Daniel Hehner


My name is Dan Hehner, and I am proud to be a Special Education Teacher at Lyon Academy. This will be my eleventh year in education and my third year with St. Louis Public Schools. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, and gardening. I try to emphasize the importance of healthy living in the classroom, as well. 

I believe that all students thrive when instruction is catered to their specific learning style. My goal is to foster a safe, inclusive environment where everyone is encouraged to take ownership of their own learning. We hope you will be a valued member of our team! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

The best way to reach me is through email, but I am available to speak everyday (excluding Wednesdays) from 9:10-10:00.

Let's have a great year!
