Dave Delgado and his family traded in the rain and snow of the Pacific Northwest for the sunny skies of Lanai. Since moving to the island from Medford, Oregon in July, he’s experienced beautiful summer weather, especially while golfing and swimming at the community pool with his kids.
Mr. Delgado teaches sixth-grade language arts, health and PE. Physical education is a fitting subject for this sports enthusiast and former football, basketball, and track and field coach.
“Hopefully I can get involved in helping with middle school sports here,” Mr. Delgado said.
He enjoys getting to know everyone on Lanai. “I absolutely love the staff and students here. My students are respectful and responsive,” he said. “I appreciate the openness and generosity of the community. I’m excited to give back.”
A self-proclaimed family man, Mr. Delgado enjoys hanging out with his four children and recently celebrated 19 years with his wife, Erin. He also loves comic books and video games, which he may have in common with many of his students.
“I’m a huge Spiderman fan.”
