    Hello, my name is Lisa Torgerson. I am one of the 3rd-grade teachers here at Cowern.  I love teaching here and all the connections that I have made with students and parents.  I really try to get to know my students and their interests.  I have a flexible seating classroom. This type of classroom is not a traditional classroom.  What does that mean?  My students are allowed to move to different spots around my room, picking a spot that works best for them to learn.  This year my focus will be on good humans and positive learning mindsets.  
    I have been teaching in the district for the last 29 years.  Besides being a teacher here in District 622, I am also a graduate of the district.  I went to Richardson Elementary, John Glenn Middle School and North High School! It has been an amazing journey working within the district.  Previously, I have had the opportunity to work with many of my childhood elementary teachers. It has been a pleasure to learn from them as well.  During my 24 years here, I have been a special education teacher, as well as working in grades 3, 4, and a split 3/4 and 4/5.
    I believe that all students can learn, it depends on their learning style. It is my job to find that learning style.  Also, we are partners in your child's education.  I make every effort to connect with you and develop a positive relationship.  I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child.  I am looking forward to a terrific school year!
