Flipped Classroom: Is It Right for You?

Flipped Classroom: Is It Right for You?

A lot of teachers wonder how flipped classrooms work and if they are worth the transition. Lets talk about how to implement a flipped classroom for the first time.

Hello! I’m Amy Mezni!

  • I believe that students need to be the leaders of the classroom. Even third graders are old enough to be held accountable and to take responsibility for their learning.
  • I do not believe that kids were made to sit in seats. They need to get up and move around.
  • Differentiated instruction is a must. I use guided reading and guided math groups to meet the individual needs of my students.
  • Helping a student to discover their love for reading is a privilege that I never get tired of.
  • School should be fun! We party in my class!
