Meet Elizabeth Zodda, Science Teacher & Department Chair
How are you involved in education?
- I’m a science teacher and department chair at The Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, PA.
What’s your ideal classroom or school like?
- My ideal classroom has four walls and lots of trust. When I started my teaching career I taught a seventh grade class in a curtained off corner of a gym, so I really appreciate four walls when I have them. My second classroom ideal is trust, because without it neither I nor the students can take the intellectual risks that lead to real learning.
Have you ever attended an unconference before?
- I attended EdCamp Philly in 2011.
If you were to lead a session at EdCamp, what would it be about?
- If I were to lead a session it would probably be about standards based grading. I’d love to connect with other teachers who use it and see how they implement it.
