Zora Skelton: Lower School Math Teacher and Math Coach


What motivated and inspired you to teach? For me, the motivation and inspiration to teach is very simple. I am shaping and sharing the future with each student I teach. While key concepts, strategies, and formulas are important components of  an academic education, helping  students build responsibility, accountability, and character is equally important.

Why are you excited to come to ESD every day? The students' passion for learning is the reason I come to ESD every day. Perhaps the greatest example of this passion happens every Friday at Lower School's Chess Club when students arrive as early at 6:50 a.m. for a club that starts at 7:00.  What better reason can I have!

What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? My job as an educator, parent, grandparent, and citizen is to help build students that will become assets to society. These students should understand their responsibility, have a work ethic, dare to dream, and show respect for one another.

What is a hobby nobody would guess you would have? Going for early morning walks (before 4:40 a.m.) is my hobby and allows me some quiet time. Some of my best ideas come from my daily morning walks. Also, I have 5 grandchildren with one more on the way, and all of our children and grandchildren live within 4 miles of our home.

What is your favorite book and why? The Children's Book of Virtues is my favorite book because it explains how to live your life.
