Colleagues recognize David Dau as an amazing educator who’s made a significant impact since joining the staff this past year. David has become a student-favorite while teaching a variety of subjects: Adult ESL, U.S. Government, U.S. History, Exploring Computer Science, Life Hacks, English 11, Botany and Writing Skills. Students appreciate that he makes learning interesting and relatable to their lives, which keeps them wanting to come back to learn more. “I like this teacher because he understands students,” one student noted. “He makes good jokes as well, and he knows how to get through to students.” With a straight-forward and realistic approach, he helps students figure out ways to accomplish dreams. Another student commended him for making class fun and schoolwork less intimidating. “He taught me how easy essays actually are to write,” the student said. “I probably won’t ever have a panic attack over one again. I always look forward to any of his classes, even if I hate the subject. He will be one of those teachers I always remember and admire.” Please join us in honoring David Dau as Entrada’s 2021 Teacher of the Year.
