Mrs. V.Dau

Hello Students and Families!
I am happy to be returning to Gray Middle School this year and learning and growing with the Gators!
I am moving up to the 7th grade floor, and will be teaching Integrated Science. We have a great team in 7th grade, and we are planning lots
of active lessons and a school science fair. I plan to use this page to post important information that my students will need to be successful in class.
I will be stressing inquiry based learning this year. Being able to think critically, do research, design solutions and communicate our results is crucial in science. I hope to be teaching from real examples and having the students solve real problems. Please make time to become involved in your student's learning. Each student is growing and learning at their own pace, and having your input and guidance will help them develop as better learners and communicators.
We will be doing many hands on activities and labs in this class. My goal will be to guide students in these activities, having them plan and perform the experiments as much as possible.
Meet Charlie Brown, our ball python, at back to school night!
