Mr. Dylan Dagen
Hello, My name is Dylan Dagen and I am the Physical Education Specialist at John A. Johnson Achievement Plus. I have been teaching for eight years and this is my third year at J.A.J. Prior to coming to J.A.J. I taught secondary Physical Education at Creative Arts in downtown Saint Paul. I have coached a variety of sports over the years and also served as Athletic Director at Capitol Hill Middle School.
After working in the construction trades for fourteen years I went back to college and graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2010 with a degree in Health & Human Performance . I grew up and went to school on the lower east side of Saint Paul and take great pride teaching in the community I grew up in.
My wife Nicole is also a teacher in SPPS and together we have three amazing children Ella (12), Levon (7), and Lucinda (5) who also attend school in our great city. I love being physically active and some of my favorite activities are golfing, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, softball, and basketball.
