Hello, my name is Elizabeth Jorgensen-Best and I am currently a 2nd grade teacher in Richmond Public Schools. I have been working with Richmond Public Schools since getting my Masters in Teaching from Virginia Commonwealth University in December of 2017 and am currently working on my math specialist endorsement from Old Dominion University. I’ve been working with kids for several years prior to becoming a classroom teacher and began my journey of becoming a teacher my junior year of high school. I enjoy engaging students in their work using hands-on activities and relating them to real life experiences. I believe that students have a strong foundation that they bring to the classroom to build their learning upon.
