Hello, my name is Travis Davis. I have been teaching 7th grade science at Dulles Middle School for 14 years now. 7th grade science is a combination of many aspects of Life Science. We cover cells, the human body systems, genetics, ecosystems, humans in space, and catastrophic events. It can be challenging but, most students can relate much of the information covered which allows the topics to be more meaningful and have more relevance. All of which, seems to help with retention of the covered information.
In addition to teaching science, I also coach 7th grade football here the Dulles Middle School Vikings. 7th grade is when sports are initially introduced to students and they are given an opportunity to participate in organized sports. It is also the first time that many children will be labeled as a "student athlete," and understand the relationship that students must follow between classroom studies and on the field participation.
