Dallas Hacker

6th Grade

Dallas Hacker was born in a suburb of Chicago. However, he has lived in Colorado most of his life. Dallas graduated from Strasburg High School, so he can easily relate to the rural area and smaller school. After high school, he earned his bachelor's degree from Chadron State College in Nebraska. Mr. Hacker also holds a master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington.  At times he will serve as the substitute principal.  He is married to his wife Meranda, and has four children, Payton, Liberty, Marshall, and Demi.

In his “spare time”, you will find Mr. Hacker chasing his kids around sporting fields or courts, working as a guest relations supervisor for the Denver Broncos, and as a field security guard for the Colorado Rockies. These are great jobs for a sports nut! He was the assistant high school baseball coach here at Byers for 16 years and also the head coach in a neighboring district.

Mr. Hacker enjoys working at Byers Elementary because the atmosphere, “just feels like family.”  Teaching in Byers for 24 years. He taught in the fourth grade for 22 years and is now in his second year of teaching sixth grade Math, Science, and Social Studies. His favorite part is watching his students graduate from high school and become successful adults. His goal is to touch the lives of his students in a positive way.
