I was sad about Daniel’s overall negative exp. However I did learn a lot from this video and appreciate that unsuccessful TFA CM’s were included in the series just not the success stories the organization likes to highlight. Discussed Daniel and Heylan on my blog a lot b/c of their negative experiences. They actually share similar qualities such as being overly focused on CONTROL of students and on meeting lofty goals etc. Too much to comment on in this section but you can see more about what I said about Daniel @ http://www.tfaadventure.com
