Mrs. Dawn Trahan
STAND BACK, WE'RE GOING TO TRY SCIENCE!
I am Mrs. Trahan, and I teach 8th grade science. I am well into the second half of my teaching career, with 16 years of service so far. I was born and raised in Houma, Louisiana, and I taught those 16 years in my hometown. I began with teaching elementary school but quickly realized I enjoyed working with older students much more. I spent 8 years with 8th graders, and then spent my last three teaching high school science. I decided to move back to 8th grade because I missed working with middle schoolers. I absolutely love spreading my science knowledge to the younger generation, and I especially love getting students excited about DOING science. It will be an awesome year!
My husband's job is our reason for moving into Willis, and we are so happy for this change. We are excited to be a part of Willis ISD. My son is a tuba player for the WHS band, and my daughter is a 6th grader at Brabham. Our family enjoys traveling in our camper, and now that we are Texas residents we look forward to exploring this great state!
Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions and/or concerns. My door is always open for students.
