Hello! My name is Daniel Bala, and I am the UPK-4th grade art teacher at Delevan Elementary School, where I enjoy helping students learn to create amazing, expressive works of art!
I have been the art teacher at Delevan since 2018, but have been teaching art since 2012, over which time I taught K-8th grade visual arts at Pinnacle Charter School and North Park Middle Academy in Buffalo, New York.
Prior to teaching, I received a BFA in Fine Arts from Fredonia State University, and received my teaching certification and Masters degree in Educational Technology from Buffalo State College.
I currently reside in Western New York, where I am a husband, and father to a beautiful two year old daughter. When I’m not teaching, or spending time with my family, I enjoy creating art of my own, exercising and playing golf, and cheering on the Buffalo Bills and Sabres!
