Nice to meet you!

Hello all,

My name is Drew Norkoli and am currently a 4th grade teacher at an elementary school in Colorado Springs Colorado.  I have been teaching for 8 years now and came into teaching as a second career.  I started my professional career as an Assistant Superintendent on a golf course.  I quickly realized the golf business wasn't for me.  After working for a year for my teacher's license, I got a job teaching English Language Arts in an online setting for Kindergarten through 6th grade.  That was a tough job and I learned a lot about distance learning.  The next year I got a job at my current school and taught 3rd grade for five years.  This will be my second year teaching 4th grade and love it so far!  I decided to get my masters in Instructional Design and Technology because of my intrigue into using technology to change education.  I have been using a flipped classroom model to teach math for the past four years and think there is a lot of room for change in our traditional educational system.  Over the past year, I have been learning a lot that will help me in this endeavor.  Hopefully, you will all have some kind of impact on my career.  I look forward to working with you all again and some of you for the first time.  Here's to another great class!
