Mr. Daniel DiMarcella


I am pleased to be at Saint Basil Academy as the new AP Biology and Algebra I instructor.  Prior to my career in education I worked in the pharmaceutical and clean air Industry.  As an analytical chemist with Dimensional Pharmaceuticals I was able to work with the most brilliant minds in drug discovery for cancer and cardio vascular disease.  We had much success with pioneering future drug discovery. Afterwards I was involved with the manufacturing and development of clean air components for the automotive and diesel industry to help reduce the global pollution and sustain our precious environment.

Following my experience in industry I pursued a career in education as I feel that was my true passion. I have worked with students from many educational and socio-economic backgrounds to achieve success in the classroom and beyond.  And I will continue to do so for your children here at Saint Basil Academy.

Along with my experience in industry I have an undergraduate degree in geology and astronomy, a master’s degree in chemistry, advanced placement certifications in biology and chemistry, along with Pennsylvania Department of Education Secondary Certification.
