"Mr. Byma has made such an impact on our family’s future. He has a gift! He nurtures those who need help in their confidence, spurs all with a passion for education and has a deep love and connection with his students. I can honestly say that my son is not the same person that he was before Dave connected with him. A path, the path is not always easy to follow, but Dave is a guiding light on the path. "

Already in 4th grade, David Byma knew he would want to teach one day. God used friends with special needs who took hold of his heart and directed him to this path. At Denver Christian, he loves to encourage students to become part of their learning. Participation in reenactments, science experiments, and case scenarios challenge students to ask questions and look at problems from different angles. David loves to walk along his students as they grow into the individuals God has designed them to be. He recognizes each, unique learning style and works toward helping students to learn in a way that will be most useful to them. When he is not teaching, David enjoys playing all sorts of games, reading, cooking, and painting.
