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!
