Daniel Dewey, Maple Mountain High School’s new Physics and Chemistry teacher, is a regular Einstein.  He’s an inventor, teacher, Science Fiction writer, robotics advisor, husband, father, and a man who prefers Wookies over Klingons; Dewey is an exceptional person.  Married to his wife Lauren, with two children, one of his favorite pastimes is to play Legos with his children and take family tricycle rides on a multi-passenger trike he built himself.  His love for inventing has led to many creations, often made with regular everyday objects that most of us would throw away.
