Dana Calloway

My name is Dana Calloway. This is my 10th year teaching and the 8th year with Pickerington Local Schools. I love teaching and treasure the experiences, which come with educating the students of Tussing Elementary School.

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio. The joy of my life is my fourteen year old son "Aurius." He is full of energy . The Buckeyes (O-H-I-O) are my favorite college football team. My hobbies/interests are: sewing, painting, traveling, and sports! One fun fact about me...February 2016 was my first time on skies since I was in the sky club my 7th grade year. If I were keeping track of time, would be over 20 years (I may be short a year or two).

Why am I a teacher? I believe my influence in a child's life will positively encourage them to excel to his or her greatest potential. My plan is to help students find their confidence and love for learning through high expectations, strong relationships, and applicable learning experiences.

I look forward to a productive school year!
