Hello families, my name is Mr. Norgren. Welcome to this awesome 2017-2018 school year. I am excited to really have fun teaching young minds how to explore everything around them through science. We are learning lots of new things this year, including Science Fair for the first time. This is my fifth year at Meadowmere, third year in fifth grade here. I am glad to share with year with your child. Have fun learning and stay curious.
About my personal life. I have kids of my own, 6, 4, and 2 years old. I love the arts. Drawing, photography, and video are my passions when I am not teaching. By the end of the year, I usually have a full wall of art from my students. Hopefully it will be the same this year.
I am an avid supporter of self learning. I believe the most powerful form of learning comes from what you are personally driven to chase. With the almost unlimited access to information on the web, there are so many possibilities to learn anything on your own, whenever you want. Don't waste your time, get learning what you want right here, right now, and soar above.
