Mr. Dan Goding

Welcome to 4th grade! My name is Dan Goding and I am a 4th grade teacher here at McAuliffe. This year will be my 15th year of teaching, with 13 of those years at this school! I absolutely love teaching 4th graders, and I am so proud to be a Silver Falcon!


Here is a little bit about me. I grew up in Loveland and still live there today. After attending Colorado State University in 1999, I became a park ranger and cycling instructor. I loved being around people and seeing the difference I could make in peoples' lives, so In 2008, I decided to attend the University of Northern Colorado to become a teacher. It was the best decision ever!
Spending a lot of time outdoors and being healthy are very important to me! I have competitively raced triathlon and running events for the last 23 years. In the summers, I spend my time in Steamboat Springs or camping all across the west and northwest. Riding my bike, backpacking, and traveling are just a few of my other favorite things to do. Anything outside makes me super happy!
We always have so much fun in this classroom and learn a ton along the way! I can't wait to see what memories we create this year! If you ever need to reach me with any questions or concerns, my email address is and my phone number is 348-1956. I will always get back to you within 24 hours.
Thank you so much for all of your support at home! This school year is going to rock!
