Hi! I'm Diana Gano, and this is my 21st year of teaching Chemistry. I have been with Dawson High School as a teacher and Science Department Chair since it opened. My background is in Chemical Engineering, and before I started teaching I worked as a Chemical Engineer doing Research & Development for over 10 years at Rohm and Haas Company. I'm a true science nerd and I love to do hands-on labs and tell terrible science puns. I'm looking forward to a great school year with you!

Here's the video I made about myself during the quarantine (I haven't changed that much!): Meet Your Teacher video
My schedule is:
Tutoring: every day I encourage students to ASK QUESTIONS in class, because the best way to clarify concepts is right away. My tutoring times will be during Eagle Hour (B) on M/W/F
Students: I am more than happy to write you a recommendation! Please come talk to me or email me to discuss what you need, and then fill out the Gano Recommendation Form.
