About Dan Haase

Wheaton College is truly my home. Since the summer of 2000, I have lived with my family in Smith-Traber Hall where my wife Kat is the Residence Director. I homeschooled my two boys from 2006-2016 while also teaching in the CFM Department starting in 2003. In brief, my vision for teaching and learning can be summed up in this phrase: love to learn; learn to love. I delight in adventuring with students through the joys and sorrows of life inside and outside the classroom.

I also oversee international internships and teach in the Center for Global and Experiential Learning (GEL). I enjoy gardening, poetry, and art.
