Message from Tran:
Welcome my little scientists!  My goal in teaching this year is to instill in all students a deeper appreciation for the complexity of living organisms and an understanding of how they function together and separately.  I hope to prepare you for the California State Standards Exams and to assist you to become “Scientifically Literate”; to learn how to learn, to develop a curiosity of the world around you, and to use the skills and knowledge of science and technology as they apply to your personal and social decisions.  In order for you to accomplish these things, it will take cooperation. Think of this class like a sport such as football or soccer. You will have to work hard independently, but you will also have to work effectively with other students and me. I believe in presenting the material in a clear and concise manner that will be as interesting as possible.  It is important to me that all students understand the material to the best of their ability; students will get out of this class what they put into it!

I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
