MEET THE ENRICHMENT MATTERS TEAM
Daniel has been involved in after school enrichment programs and camps for over a decade. He started by teaching a few thousand students chess, and now manages programs and programming at more than 300 different schools in the DC and Baltimore Metro areas. He got married in November, and lives in Arlington with his wife Lauren and their cats Moe and Leila.
Savon is a DC Native and received his Bachelors in Communications from Liberty University. He has been involved with student enrichment as a Public Speaking/Debate coach, classroom teacher, and in management for over 10 years and has a background running academic summer camps all over the country from sunny California to bustling New York City. What has driven him, no matter where he has gone, is his belief that all children can and should achieve their highest dreams. Outside of his time working in enrichment, Savon enjoys spending time with his family going hiking, attending hip-hop music festivals, and going on food excursions.
