Mr. Daniel Habinek

Dear Nighthawk Family,

I hope this finds everyone safe and healthy.  I know these are unsettling times, but I want you to know your Ironwood Ridge Family is working hard to create as much calm, peace, and stability for both parents and most importantly our students. 
Please be patient as we embark on this new adventure and please be sure to let me know if you hit any speed bumps along the way and I will do my best to help or find someone who can help us both! 🙂

Welcome to Ironwood Ridge High School, Home of the Nighthawks!  I am a Special Education Instructor with 18 years of educational experience.  In addition, I have a passion for assisting students to reach their fullest potential and obtain their highest goals.  I am honored to be a part of Nighthawk Nation and the Special Education Department.  Moreover, to be "The Voice Of The Nighthawks" as the Public Address Announcer for Football, Boys Basketball (Freshmen, JV and Varsity), and Girls Basketball (Freshmen, JV, and Varsity).  My wife Angie is a 2nd grade teacher at Mesa Verde Elementary School and we have 2 beautiful daughters, one is serving in the United States Army as a Combat Medic and the other is a Junior at IRHS, along with 6 dogs (Blue, Oso, Marley, Tucker, Maverick, and Romeo). 

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. -Theodore Roosevelt
