Welcome to Mrs. Mata's 4th Grade Science Class 
    Hello and welcome!!
    I am very excited to be teaching Science this year  We will be using 3 programs/curriculum to meet the 4th grade Science standards; Mystery Science, Gizmos and Picture Perfect. The students will be using Canvas to access their Science assignments each day.  Many exciting opportunities for learning are in store this year for your student. 
    In shaping the minds of 4th grade scientists, I want my students to ask questions, ponder solutions, be courageous and try new things, and probably the hardest one of all, not give up.   Most of all though, I want my students to enjoy learning!!  My goal is to help each one of my students develop into critical thinkers and problem solvers. 
    I am a firm believer that the best education for a child requires a partnership between the teacher and parents. 
    Please feel free to reach me by email at rachel.mata@dvusd.org
    or by phone at 623-445-8456.  I look forward to having an amazing year!! 
    Thank you for sharing your children with me!
